Dr. He has expertise in synthesis and characterization of electrode and electrolyte materials. His research concern on the development of next-generation battery systems including Mg-sulfur batteries and solid-state batteries. He has experience in the synthesis of nano materials for battery electrodes, electrode fabrication, battery assembly and battery testing. Dr. He specializes in electrochemical characterizations such as galvanostatic cycling of batteries, cyclic voltammetry (CV) and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS). Additionally, he is experienced with various materials characterization techniques such as X-ray powder diffraction (XRD), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR), Ultraviolet-visible spectroscopy (UV-Vis), inductively coupled plasma - optical emission spectrometry (ICP-OES), Raman spectroscopy and thermogravimetric analysis (TGA). Dr. He also has experiences on forced fault test on PCBA.

Prior to joining Exponent, Dr. He was a Graduate Research Assistant at University of Notre Dame. He worked on multiple projects related to Mg-sulfur batteries and polymer solid-state batteries including nanostructured sulfur cathodes for Mg-sulfur batteries, Mg-S flow batteries, the failure mechanism of Mg-S batteries and the development of silicone based high transference number polymer electrolytes.
