I’m Andy. I’ve been thinking a lot about learning agents lately. I’m also a co-founder of Databricks. Before that, I was a PhD student in Computer Science in the AMPLab at UC Berkeley. My research and work is focused on data processing and machine learning systems like Spark, MLflow, and Mesos.
During grad school, I interned at Yahoo! with the Hadoop team, co-created Mesos, and interned at Google with the Borg team. At Databricks, I’ve contributed to Spark, led the creation of Spark MOOCs (a collaboration with UC Berkeley and EdX), built the training and professional services orgs, started the Spark Summits, and was the first product manager of MLflow.
