Yue Qi is a computational materials scientist at Michigan State University. As a graduate student in William Goddard's laboratory at the California Institute of Technology, she worked on molecular modelling, including in nanowires and binary liquid metals. They shared the 1999 Feynman Prize in Nanotechnology for Theory along with Tahir Cagin for "work in modeling the operation of molecular machine designs." In 2001 she became a research scientist at General Motors Research and Development, where she was recognized for work in interfacial tribology and multiscale modeling of aluminum plasticity and computational analysis of grain boundaries to improve the strength and flexibility of aluminum panels. In 2013, she joined the faculty of Michigan State University, where her research program focuses on materials simulation for clean energy,
