Zac Hatfield-Dodds

Research Fellow
Australian National University

Zac is a researcher at the Australian National University’s 3A Institute, building a new applied science to 'manage the machines' - AI, cyber-physical systems, and other new technologies.

He started using Python to analyse huge environmental datasets, and contributing to libraries like Xarray to make such analysis easier for all scientists. Now, as a maintainer of Hypothesis, Pytest, and Trio, Zac is still passionate about making it easy to write software you can understand and rely on - especially for models or ML tools where we can't know the correct answer in advance!

When not at a computer he can usually be found surrounded by books of all kinds, the Australian bush, or both.
