Biography: Xiao Su is an Assistant Professor in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. He obtained his Bachelor in Applied Sciences in Chemical Engineering from the University of Waterloo in 2011. He completed his PhD in Chemical Engineering from MIT in 2017, working under the supervision of Professor T. Alan Hatton from Chemical Engineering and Professor Timothy F. Jamison from Chemistry. During his doctoral studies, Xiao received the MIT Water Innovation Prize (2016) and the MassCEC Catalyst Award (2017) for his work on electrochemically-mediated water purification. In 2016, Xiao was also selected to participate in the Langmuir Graduate Student Oral Presentation Award session at the 90th ACS Colloid & Surface Science Symposium at Harvard.
He joined the faculty of UIUC in January 2019, and his research program pursues the molecular engineering of electrochemical interfaces for advanced separations and process intensification. Xiao is a recipient NSF CAREER Award (2019) to develop new separation processes for small molecule purification. Xiao is also programming co-chair of Area 1E: Electrochemical Fundamentals at AIChE, and a member of the working committee for CDI & Electrosorption conferences.
