Asia (Ah-see-ah) is a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Energy Storage and Distributed Resources Division of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL). Her research interests include understanding interface chemistry through nanoscale imaging and vibrational spectroscopy. In her role as a Postdoctoral Researcher at LBNL, she investigates the early stages of the solid electrolyte interphase (SEI) formation in Li-ion batteries using in situ sSNOM-based infrared nanospectroscopy. Asia received a Ph.D. in Material Science and Engineering in 2021 under the supervision of Professor Yury Gogotsi at Drexel University and M.Sc. in Chemistry from Moscow State University. Her doctoral work involved understanding and interpreting Raman spectra of 2D materials MXenes (a class of two-dimensional transition metal carbides and nitrides). During her doctoral work, she developed MXene Surface-Enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) sensor, MXene-based electromagnetic speakers, and MXene-based antennas.
