Dr. Oey is a materials engineer with expertise in materials characterization, materials synthesis, structure-property relationships, and magnetic materials. She has experience using X-ray diffraction (XRD), energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS), X-ray fluorescence (XRF), and magnetometry. Dr. Oey routinely conducts materials evaluations in root cause analysis of consumer electronics, consumer products and other systems.

Prior to joining Exponent, Dr. Oey completed her doctoral work at University of California, Santa Barbara, where she studied novel magnetocaloric materials and superconducting kagome metals using high temperature synthesis and air sensitive materials. Her work involved developing new syntheses procedures to efficiently and systematically modify chemical compositions to determine the effects on observable properties. Specifically, she studied how small changes in structure can affect magnetic transition temperatures, since understanding these structure-property relationships is crucial in developing new materials with desirable practical properties.
