In 2009, Xin Su received his BS degree in chemistry from Nankai University (Tianjin, China). There, he worked as an undergraduate research assistant in Yu Liu’s group on the recognition and assembly of water-soluble calixarenes.
Currently enrolled in the chemistry graduate program at Dartmouth College (Hanover, NH), Su is working toward his Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry under the supervision of Ivan Aprahamian. His research involves the development of novel hydrazone-based molecular switches, machines, and other functional derivatives.
Su has been a member of the American Chemical Society since 2010.
