John Mount, Ph.D.
I produce applied research, prototyping and training in information extraction, algorithms and data-mining for web-scale businesses, hedge funds and start ups. Right now I do this as a consultant at Win-Vector LLC. Earlier I have managed a research group at Shopping.com, performed research in biotech and been a trader in a hedge-fund.
