Yi is a Ph.D. candidate in Ada Poon’s group in the Department of Electrical Engineering. She is currently studying the mechanisms of extracellular electrical stimulation and analyzing the effects of different current waveforms applied at the electrode. In the future, she plans to electrically stimulate the mouse hippocampus for memory recovery as a potential treatment for early-stage Alzheimer’s disease. Before joining Stanford, Yi received her B.S. degree in physics at Peking University in China.
