Answer:

Quoting krudebox

Matt Damon and James Croll.
Croll was a janitor in Andersonian College and Museum, Glasgow when he published his paper explaining the effects of variations in Earth’s orbit around the sun on global climatic conditions, and specifically the onset and retreat of ice-ages.
Similar to Matt Damon’s character in Good Will Hunting who solves a problem on algebraic graph theory while working as a janitor in MIT.
