Greg Sadetsky, Hacker and Rescuer

Greg Sadetsky, graduate of the Biophotonics program in 2014, used his unparalleled programming skills and his regard for human life to program a tool for identifying people needing rescue during hurricane Harvey from their Twitter feed and Facebook pages, and helped prioritize research efforts for the military. He has received a letter from the army to thank him, and an article was written in FastCompany about him. From the article:

In the meantime, his work on the Harvey map has made him rethink the kind of work he does on a regular basis, making it more likely he’ll want to devote his time and energy in the future to projects that can positively benefit humanity. And it’s had a major impact on his thinking ever since the storm.”

Congrats Greg.  Nobody here is surprised.
