Linda Ye's research focuses on designing topological and correlated quantum materials via materials synthesis, high precision transport measurements in combination with cryogenic strain tuning. Ye pioneered in the discovery of an emerging class of novel quantum materials termed "kagome metals". She received the Block Award from Aspen Center for Physics in 2020. She received her doctoral degree in Physics from Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2020 and obtained her M. Eng. in Applied Physics from the University of Tokyo in 2014, and B.Sc. in Mathematics and Physics from Tsinghua University in 2012.
