About me

I’m David Liu, a senior engineering leader based in San Francisco, California. I’m passionate about ML infrastructure and applied machine learning, with particular experience in recommender systems and computer vision. Currently, I lead the Machine Learning Platforms team at Pinterest. See more about my professional experience and projects.

I’ve been deeply interested in technology since childhood and started programming when I was six. I competed extensively in science competitions in middle and high school. Later, I got my B.S. and M.S. in Computer Science from Stanford University, specializing in systems and AI. Here are some projects from my school days.

I love to tinker with hardware projects, especially those at the intersection of art and engineering. I’ve played with 3D printing, electronics, and FPV drones to make many of my personal projects, like light art for music festivals and Burning Man.
