Xu is currently a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard University. He received his B.S. degree from Sichuan University, China (2006) and his Ph.D. from the National Center for Nanoscience and Technology, China (2011) under the direction of Prof. Lei Jiang. His scientific interests were focused on the design and fabrication of biomimetic smart nanopores/nanochannels. Xu’s current research interests in Prof. Joanna Aizenberg’s group include microfluidics, slippery surfaces, as well as bio-inspired materials. He has already published more than 24 research papers.
