What happens when a political entrepreneur and astronomer share the same vision? Innovation.
At VEDA Data Solutions, we’re on a mission to accelerate patients’ ability to access the care they need, reduce financial loss in the healthcare system, and create efficiencies that drive healthcare innovation.
Our founders are motivated by a belief that the tools to make a better world are being developed right now by talented scientists around the globe, and we can harness those tools to solve the problems impacting people every day.
We empower young and talented researchers to focus their efforts on creating products that lead to better health outcomes and access to care for patients, while encouraging their natural desire to experiment and discover.
VEDA was founded by an astronomer and a political entrepreneur, Dr. Bob Lindner and Meghan Gaffney Buck. Bob’s research looked to the stars, using machine learning to uncover how galaxies were formed. Meghan’s career was focused closer to Earth, bringing together constellations of political and community leaders to solve problems in healthcare, energy, and the environment.
VEDA remains rooted in our founders’ shared passion for connecting innovation and practical problem solving. Today, over 15 million people rely on VEDA data tools to power the healthcare industry.
Together, they have over 20 years of experience using machine learning to solve complex problems. They’ve done everything from finding the largest shockwave in the universe to modeling open-ended evolution in video games.

Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer
Dr. Bob Lindner
Dr. Bob Lindner, co-founder and CTO at VEDA Data Solutions, empowers and guides VEDA’s scientific and engineering teams.
He provides strategic vision, builds innovative core data science technologies and connects our VEDA scientists to our Scientific Advisory Board.
Bob fell hard for data science, and has a passion for solving big problems, not just in the Universe, but those affecting our everyday lives here on earth. With over ten years’ experience, he is a published and acclaimed astrophysicist with experience modeling data, and designing and building cloud-based machine learning systems. Bob had a number of impressive and significant discoveries and “first detections” in his years researching and studying.
Most notably, he created machine learning code that automates and accelerates the ability for scientists to analyze data from next generation telescopes. That program, Gausspy, continues to increase scientists’ understandings of our galaxy’s origins. He earned his Ph.D. in physics from Rutgers University and was a postdoctoral researcher at UW-Madison, where he led the development of Gausspy.
