I'm John Haws.

I am an applied mathematician and data scientist in Durham, North Carolina.

I'm the director of the Data and Analytics Practice within Duke University's Office of Information Technology.

I am the founder of two small companies. Taurus Math is a data science and data engineering consulting company helping early-stage growth companies establish in-house data science operations. In 2019, colleagues and I founded Merge Metrics, which specializes in reporting and analytics for publishers.

Before joining Duke, I was CTO at Reveal Mobile, a location-based analytics business, and I am still an advisor for the company.

Earlier, I was Chief Data Scientist at Digital Turbine, an app-delivery platform used by mobile carriers. My team developed a number of high-throughput, low-latency decisioning platforms for programmatic advertising, app recommendations, and impression valuation.

I previously worked at Boeing Phantom Works , and later at SAS . Long, long ago, I was a 1992 corps member in Teach For America.
