Dr. Morgan is a materials engineer with experience in materials characterization and failure analysis in batteries and consumer electronics. She currently applies this expertise in assisting clients in product failure analysis, intellectual property litigation and battery design and safety evaluations. She is knowledgeable in structural characterization using microscopy and X-ray diffraction, as well as chemical analysis using FTIR, Raman, and XPS. Prior to joining Exponent, Dr. Morgan received her Ph.D. in Materials from UC Santa Barbara under the supervision of Professor Ram Seshadri. During her time at UCSB, her research was supported by an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program award and focused on the synthesis and characterization of functional inorganic materials, with a focus on perovskite-derived structures. In particular, she used spectroscopy, diffraction, and computational tools to evaluate the structure-property relationships in materials for battery, solar cell, and electronics applications.
