Dr. Ye is formally trained in the field of mechanical engineering with a focus on next-generation lithium-ion battery nano materials. She is experienced with nano material synthesis methods such as sol gel, chemical vapor deposition, and electrospinning, as well as battery electrode fabrication and battery cell assembly. 

Dr. Ye specializes in electrochemical characterization methods for lithium-ion batteries including galvanostatic cycling with potential limitation (GCPL), cyclic voltammetry (CV), and galvanostatic intermittent titration technique(GITT). Her other experiences include using scanning electron microscopy (SEM), Raman spectroscopy, X-ray powder diffraction (XRD), and energy-dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy (EDS) for material characterization.

Prior to joining Exponent, Dr. Ye was a graduate researcher at University of California, Riverside. She worked on various lithium-ion battery projects utilizing different new generation materials including nickel oxide, silicon, and sulfur. Her projects were focused on understanding lithium-ion batteries through the help of electrochemical evaluation.
