Matt Knepley is my personal hero

Mathematicians are known to engage in hero worship, and I’m not really an exception.

Matt Knepley is a researcher at Argonne National Labs who works on the award-winning software package PETSc (Portable, Extensible Toolkit for Scientific Computation). It contains a suite of scalable tools for a host of scientific computing problems.

I’ve never met Matt in person, but I suspect that when I do I’ll be a little star struck.
