Happy Anniversary, Jeremy!
Feb 15, 2011
Time flies! Today marks the 10th anniversary of Jeremy Shaver joining Eigenvector Research. There are so many nice things I could say about Jeremy that I’m not sure where to start.
When Jeremy joined us in 2001, It didn’t take long for us to figure out that he was more than merely multi-talented. He rapidly took over as lead developer of our software products. As Chief of Technology Development, Jeremy, more than anyone else at EVRI, has been the driving force behind the updates (PLS_Toolbox versions 3.0 through 6.0) and many of the new products (MIA_Toolbox, Solo, Model_Exporter, etc.) we’ve released. There is a lot of his vision in the way our software works, looks and feels.
There have been lots of times when one of us said, “Wouldn’t it be great if our software did _____?” And then about 2 hours later Jeremy sends us some code to try out, and says, “You mean like this?” And we just laugh in amazement, “Yeah, like that!”
Jeremy also contributes greatly on consulting projects and is an enthusiastic short course instructor. He always leads our PowerUser Tips & Tricks session at EigenU because nobody know how to get more out of the software than he does.
Besides his chemometric skills, Jeremy is a pilot, a great guitarist (witness this jam session with Rasmus and Randy at EigenU 2010), avid outdoorsman, and devoted husband and dad. And we like to drink beer and hang out with him too!
Congratulations Jeremy. We hope you’ve enjoyed it as much as we have!
