Zhi (Jackie) Yao received the B.S. degree in optical engineering from Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China, in 2012, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), in 2014 and 2017, respectively, under the mentorship of Prof. Yuanxun Ethan Wang. During the last year of college, she worked under the mentorship of Prof. Neville C. Luhmann at the University of California, Davis, USA. During her graduate study at UCLA, she worked with the Center for Translational Applications of Nanoscale Multiferroic Systems. She was a Postdoctoral Researcher under the supervision of both Prof. Tatsuo Itoh and Prof. Yuanxun Ethan Wang at UCLA afterward. She joined Berkeley Lab in November 2019. She is currently the Luis W. Alvarez Postdoctoral Fellow with Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Her research interests include numerical modeling of quantum computing hardware, multiphysics interactions, nonlinear magnetics modeling, novel material applications for RF frontend design, and multiferroics in RF applications.
