Jackie Zhi Yao the 2019 Luis W. Alvarez Postdoctoral Fellow in Computing Sciences with the Center for Computational Sciences and Engineering (CCSE) in the Computational Research Division of the Computing Sciences Directorate at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.

Jackie has a combined background of computational science and domain sciences of waves, materials, and wireless techniques. She currently targets at modeling multiphysics coupling effects previously disregarded due to the difficulty in existing numerical solutions. In this new approach, she intends to include linear/nonlinear effects from quantum to classical, nanometer to centimeter (multiscale), and DC to THz (multi-temporal), providing a pathway to engineer light-matter interaction of critical importance to future devices and computation methods.

Prior to joining LBNL on Nov. 2019, she obtained both the Ph.D. and M.S. degrees from Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at UCLA.
