I used python to handle large data-sets, in form of arrays, and to read specific data-formats (fits files). I used it for analysing different data-types, as for instance photometric and spectroscopic data. I also used Python also as the main plotting tool. I also have some experience in multi-threaded scripting with python
    - I am comfortable in working under Linux / Mac OSX / Windows OS environments.
    - I know HTML scripting
