Who we are

What we believe

We believe all companies, regardless of industry or scale, need access to cutting edge data science solutions.

We believe in reducing costs with open source tools and frameworks.

We believe it's your data, not ours.

We believe in helping you find not only answers, but new questions.

Our Team

Christopher Mehfoud, Lead Scientist

Lead Scientist

Christopher Mehfoud

As a native of Richmond, Virginia, Christopher has been working in analytics for the last decade; in areas including but not limited to, IT, pharmaceuticals, finance, and sports. Along with recent stints at Capital One and Richmond Analytics, he also enjoys working on side projects and competitions related to data. He is a graduate of Virginia Tech with degrees in Mathematics and Economics and is currently working on a Ph.D. in Systems Modeling and Analysis at VCU. When he’s not working with data, he can be found at the ice rink, or playing some other sport at an amateur level.

President

Jonathan Kuhn

Epitomizing Tolkien’s phrase, all who wander are not lost, Jonathan is on a journey to less explored worlds of data. He obtained his Ph.D. in statistics from The University of South Carolina. Since then he has been a professor at James Madison University, trained a data analytics team in Dhaka, Bangladesh, hunted genes at the Virginia Institute of Psychiatric and Behavioral Genetics, learned the ins and out of Medicaid and pharma’s data taxonomy, lead a team of statisticians at Magellan Health and even warded off pharmaceutical theft while leading Richmond Analytics. Otherwise, he enjoys time with his family, travel and inventing modern electronic devices which invariable look like modern Rube Goldberg Machines.

Chief Operations Officer

Connor Riley

After graduating from Elon University with a degree in Physics, Connor put his toes on a line in Pensacola, FL and began a nine year Naval career. He served as a special operations officer in what he not so humbly calls "the world's most capable bomb squad", Navy EOD. Post Navy he was lucky enough to land a contractor gig with Google where he got his first taste of coding and analytics. Fast forwarding to the present, Connor’s primary duties at Inkling Intelligence revolve around project management but stop by at the right time and you’ll catch him with sleeves rolled up, turning digital wrenches.  When not slowing down the team with some sort of meeting, Connor spends his time chasing his dogs, building the occasional robot, and sleeping under the stars as often as life permits.

Kat Zaraf, Lead Programmer

Lead Programmer

Kat Zarfas

Kat has a degree in Statistics from Virginia Tech. While working on genetic research at the Mayo Clinic, she realized quickly that she was much more suited to coding and working with statisticians than being one. As the Lead Programmer at Inkling Intelligence, Kat coaxes information from databases to the screen in a variety of shiny formats, from tables to maps and beyond. When she is not knee-deep in code, she can be found outside, with her kids, or pursuing the perfect cup of coffee. She feels incomplete without her Kindle on hand.
