When Ions Meet Electrons --- Modeling the Interfaces in Solid-State Batteries


Dr. Yue Qi is the Joan Wernig Sorensen Professor of Engineering at Brown University. She received her Ph.D. degree in Materials Science with a minor in Computer Science from CalTech. She spent the next 12 years working at the General Motors R&D Center. At GM, she developed multi-scale models starting from the atomistic level to solve engineering problems related to lightweight alloys, fuel cells, and batteries. She transitioned from industry to academia in 2013 and served on the faculty in the Chemical Engineering and Materials Science Department at Michigan State University until 2020. Professor Qi and her “Materials Simulation for Clean Energy” Lab develops multi-scale simulation methods to design materials that are critically important for an energy-efficient and sustainable future. She has received several awards for her research, including the co-recipient of 1999 Feynman Prize in Nanotechnology for Theoretical Work for her Ph.D. work; three GM Campbell awards for fundamental research on various topics while working in GM; and the 2017 Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (TMS) Brimacombe Medalist Award for her contributions in multidisciplinary computational materials science. She is also passionate about increasing diversity in Engineering and served as the inaugural Associate Dean for Inclusion and Diversity in the College of Engineering at MSU between 2018-2020.
