At this environmental nexus, my overarching scientific goal is to develop fundamental understandings and transformative technologies for the future of clean energy and sustainability.
I am currently a postdoc research fellow in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Stanford University, working with Prof. Yi Cui. I am investigating the electrochemical reaction mechanisms of high-energy-density lithium metal batteries and developing charging protocols and battery diagnostic tools to enable the safe operation of batteries. I obtained my Ph.D. degree in Chemical Engineering from University of California, Los Angeles under the guidance of Prof. Yunfeng Lu, focusing on the design of functional materials and cell architectures to advance high-energy-density sulfur cathode.
I am fortunate to be recognized by several honors and awards, including Electrochemical Society (ECS) Young Investigator Lecture Series in SF section, Women Chemist Committee Postdoc Series, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Dissertation Year Fellowship, ARCO Fellowship, UCLA Graduate Division Fellowship.
Besides research, I organized a broader impact symposium in the Materials Research Society (MRS) Fall Meeting (2021), focusing on “Women in Materials Science.” I am also an active member of Stanford Allies for Women in Science and Engineering (WISE) Group, MatSci DEI Task Force, MatSci Mentors Program.
