Ugh, this reads like a job ad.

When I moved from Matlab to Python three years ago, I saw a massive speed increase of my methods. Also I no longer have to decide whether or not to shell out more cash for the statistics package, it's all there!

Looking back at my old Matlab code also makes me cringe a bit about the syntax of that language.

If, by "halfway between Tokyo and Fukushima", you mean it's a hell of a lot closer to Tokyo (60km) than Fukushima (200km). And I live there too, though I was in Hyogo at the time of the quake so didn't feel anything.

One rather nice outcome, though, is the SafeCast project. This project revolves around continuous mapping of the environment through bps-logger-coupled gamma spectrometers.

Additional links: A big discussion has taken place on PubPeer following a pre-publication arXiv release of a paper (full disclosure: I'm a co-author on the second version of this paper). The paper is well worth a read, and should be coming out soon in PLoS One.
