Xi joined the Department of Chemistry and Division of Materials Science & Engineering at Boston University as an assistant professor in September 2016. Before that, she was a postdoc in Prof. Mildred Dresselhaus and Prof. Jing Kong’s group in Research Laboratory of Electronics at MIT, where she learned the CVD synthesis of 2D materials and their heterostructures, and materials characterization using spectroscopic techniques . She obtained her Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry in Prof. Jin Zhang and Prof. Zhongfan Liu’s group at Peking University in China, where she discovered the graphene-enhanced Raman scattering (GERS) effect and investigated this effect systematically.
