Dr. Jiaqi Li specializes in fabrication and characterization of thin film materials, as well as design and fabrication of 3D nano-sized materials for lithium ion battery anodes. Her research expertise includes wet chemical syntheses of conformal functional coatings, sintering, shape-preserving chemical transformation of complex-shaped materials and characterization of nanostructured materials. She also has a deep understanding in thermodynamics and kinetics of gas-solid chemical reactions (e.g., metal oxidation, combustion, etc.). In addition, she is extensively experienced in various state-of-art material preparation and characterization tools, such as vacuum and inert atmosphere furnaces, auto-polisher, focused-ion beam (FIB) milling, optical microscopy (OM), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS), X-ray diffraction (XRD), atomic force microscopy (AFM), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), thermal gravimetric analysis (TGA), and quartz crystal microbalance (QCM). Dr. Li also has research experience in polymer composite bio-implant materials and related fatigue testing.

Prior to joining Exponent, Dr. Li was a graduate researcher at Purdue University, where she worked on multiple projects, including development of patterned high refractive index ceramic thin films for light-focusing devices, replication of bio-inspired nanostructures using wet conformal coating and chemical transformation reactions, as well as investigation of chemical reaction kinetics.
