I'm currently the Chief Data Scientist at O'Reilly Media, the Program Chair of both the Strata Data Conference & the O'Reilly Artificial Intelligence Conference. I'm also an advisor to a few exciting startups and organizations: Databricks, Alluxio (formerly TacyhonNexus), Matroid, Anodot, Determined AI, ASI Data Science, Graphistry, DeepScale, Yakit, and The Center for Data Intensive Science + Open Commons Consortium (University of Chicago). I was also previously an advisor to Lattice Data. For my recent writings, please visit the Gradient Flow.

An ex-academic, I was an Assistant Professor at U.C. Davis and was the founding Department Chair for Statistics and Mathematics at C.S.U. Monterey Bay. I have been a visiting member of the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute in Berkeley and have taught at U.C. Santa Barbara and the University of the Philippines.

I enjoy writing and have written and published on topics ranging from Applied Mathematics and Statistics, Finance, Marketing Research, and Technology. I am a member of the Editorial Board of the Big Data Journal.
