Dr. Jingyi Chen joined the Dyson School of Design Engineering as a research associate in 2019. She graduated with a BEng degree at Imperial College London in Materials Science and Engineering in 2015 with the Bessemer Medal as the Top 1 undergraduate student and then obtained her PhD degree in Materials Research in 2019. Her PhD study focused on the performance and stability of nanoscale nickel cermets for solid oxide cells (SOC). During her PhD study in the Electrochemical Science and Engineering group, she did extensive work on FIB-SEM 3-D tomography and EIS analysis with cermet electrodes, correlating the 3-D parameters with the electrochemical performance with TML and ALS models. She also obtained the Associate Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy in 2019.

Her current research on the BAFTA Innovate UK project focuses on battery management systems (BMS) for hybrid electric vehicles. She is leading the work package on investigating the degradation diagnostics and prognostics on lithium ion batteries, with a particular focus on mechanical effects in electrode particles. She also worked on Li-Sulphur battery during her 3-month visit in KAUST in Saudi Arabia.
