About myself

My name is Jade (or more formally Itamar Balla), I am an engineer at Intel. My interests are in data science and machine learning and their application in process engineering. Before joining Intel, I graduated from Northwestern University with a Ph.D. in materials engineering where my research focused on two-dimensional nanomaterials.
