Jiang Xu's Biography

Jiang Xu, Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Ryerson University

Dr. Jiang Xu is now working as a Postdoc Research Fellow at Ryerson University, affiliated with Li Knowledge Institute and Keenan Research Centre of St. Michael's Hospital, in Toronto, Canada. His current research focuses on using microfluidic tools to investigate fundamental fluid mechanics of microbubble generation and their applications. Prior to joining Ryerson University, Dr. Xu was a Postdoc at MMN Lab (with Prof. Patrick Tabeling) of ESPCI ParisTech and IPGG (lnstitut Pierre-Gilles Gennes), from 2016 to 2018. During this period, his work included: Enhanced oil recovery by microfluidic models (funded by Shell), and freeze-dried monodisperse microbubbles as ultrasound contrast enhanced agents (in collaboration with Boston University). He also worked as a Ph.D. engineer in the global R&D lab (Lab of Future, Bordeaux) of Solvay, from 2012 to 2014 and 2015 to 2016, on research of nanoparticle synthesis, colloids and interfaces, and drug delivery. Dr. Jiang Xu obtained his cotutelle Ph.D. degrees from University of Waterloo (Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering-Nanotechnology) and Université de Bordeaux (Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry) in 2016, funded by Erasmus Mundus Doctoral Fellowship. He received his M.Sc. from Chinese University of Hong Kong (2012) and his B.E. from Beijing University of Chemical Engineering (2011). He is also a member of the European Colloid and Interface Society and a member of the Controlled Release Society.
