Rion Dooley is principal investigator on the Agave Project a Science-as-a-Service API platform allowing researchers worldwide to manage data, run code, collaborate freely, and integrate their science anywhere. His previous projects span areas of identity management, distributed web security, full-stack application development, data management, cloud services, and high performance computing. He earned his Ph.D. in computer science from Louisiana State University. Rion actively puts his wife and two daughters at the top of his list of accomplishments. He hopes his work can someday edge out dancing teddy bears and smear-proof lipstick on their lists of favorite inventions.
