Masako Yamada

PhD, Physics, Computational Science (Boston University) MS, Physics, Computational Science (Boston University) BS, Physics and English (Wellesley College)

Masako leads a team of scientists and engineers who develop full-stack industrial software to connect people + data + things. The goal is to enable better outcomes -- and continuously improving those outcomes -- for customers, in fields as diverse as biopharmaceutical processing, additive manufacturing and service shop inspections. 

Masako has pursued high-performance simulation/modeling for decades: as an undergraduate at Wellesley College; intern at the University of Chicago; NSF Graduate Research Trainee at Boston University; and PI/co-PI of peer-reviewed US Department of Energy supercomputing awards here at GE Research. Masako has worked with other organizations to optimize algorithms in areas such as load-balancing, massively parallelized time-acceleration and code for hybrid CPU-GPU architectures. She has been recognized by the high-performance computing press including the 2014 HPC Wire People to Watch award.

At GE Research, Masako has worked on many wonderful projects including: LCD display films, wrinkle-diminishing creams, industry-leading optical biosensors, anti-icing surfaces and additive manufacturing inspections. 

Masako has always loved music, literature and the arts. She's freelanced as a patent translator, trade magazine writer, restaurant critic, lifestyle columnist, piano teacher and vocal accompanist for decades before the terms "gig economy" and "creative class" became popular.

We're ready to partner with you.
