Yi’s main research interest is in geometric analysis with a focus on geometric flows. She studies various curvature conditions under which one can start a Ricci flow from a non-compact manifold. She is also interested in Ricci solitons and ancient Ricci flows, especially the structure of 3D steady gradient Ricci solitons that are so-called flying wings.
Yi received the Herb Alexander Prize for an outstanding dissertation in pure mathematics, awarded by UC Berkeley.
