Copyright   ©  1999-­2016   IDTechEx.   Use  in  accordance   with  distribution   licence    |    www.IDTechEx.com slide22 Dr Xiaoxi He covers energy storage, printed electronics and photovoltaics at IDTechEx. Xiaoxi obtained her PhD in Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge, where she worked on organic photovoltaics. Prior to that, she completed her MSc at the University of Ulm (Germany) on advanced materials and her BSc degree at Shandong University (China). Xiaoxi has authored several publications in leading peer-­reviewed journals. Xiaoxi speaks Chinese (Mandarin) and English. Xiaoxi brings a wealth of technical expertise to IDTechEx. She has focused extensively on the technology and commercial aspects of thin, flexible or printed batteries, and is now an opinion leader in the industry. She also leads our coverage and analysis of high-­tech innovation in China, regularly interviewing the key Chinese innovators and speaking at key conferences. Xiaoxi has extensive consulting experience. She has helped our clients to form a technology ecosystem to commercialize a wearable product that requires a battery technology with a special form factor. She has also helped our clients identify how their nanomaterial can deliver value in advanced and post lithium ion battery technologies. She is now focused on key innovations that enable flexible personal computing devices. Technology  Analyst Tel:  +44  (0)  1223  812  300x.he@idtechex.com Dr  Xiaoxi  He
