Dr. Sophie Lee consults on a wide range of products related to electrochemistry and energy storage technologies. In particular, Dr. Lee has worked on a broad array of technologies including sodium and lithium-ion batteries, aqueous flow batteries, lithium-air batteries, and electrolyzers. They also routinely assist clients with lifetime assessments, performance enhancements, cell failure analysis and degradation mechanisms from lab scale to multi-KW cell stacks.

Dr. Lee is experienced in a variety of analytical techniques including electrochemical characterizations, such as standard battery cycling and testing, cyclic voltammetry (CV), rotating (ring) disk electrode measurements (RDE/RRDE), electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS), as well as material characterizations, including X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy(FTIR), UV-VIS, profilometry, scanning electron microscopy (SEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD), and X-ray computed tomography (CT). Additionally, they have experience with advanced cleanroom and microfabrication techniques, DC and RF thin film sputtering, stereolithography for rapid prototyping, and modeling electrochemical systems in COMSOL.

Dr. Lee completed a Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering at Drexel University with research focused on interfacial phenomena in Sodium and Lithium-Ion batteries. They developed a novel microfabricated electrode array for electroanalysis of soluble electrolyte degradation products. Prior to graduate school they worked as a research engineer developing flow batteries for grid scale energy storage applications and hold two patents related to flow battery management.
