Jeff McGehee

Jeff's professional career has been focused on applying computation to engineering problems — the majority of which have involved simulation, calibration, system control, and optimization. The more he’s studied machine learning, the more he’s become motivated to understand how it can be applied effectively to complex problems in the real (engineering) world. 

At Very, Jeff brings his applied mathematics and machine learning knowledge to a wide array of problems and projects involving images, natural language, social graphs, temporal data, and geospacial data. In his role as Very's IoT practice lead, Jeff is a regular contributor to the OTA (over the air) firmware update server NervesHub, applying his learnings from our IoT projects. 


Before joining Very, Jeff was a research and design engineer at Variable, Inc., where he developed proprietary mathematical models for accurate color measurement; set up a scientific analysis python environment with custom modules for internal company use; and built and deployed internal tools that allow non-technical workers to apply machine learning models. (Among other things.)
