Xinge Yu received his B.S. in engineering and technology in optoelectronics from the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China (UESTC) in 2009. He finished his Ph.D. research in solution process/printable flexible electronics at Northwestern University under the supervision of Prof. Tobin J. Marks and Prof. Antonio Facchetti, and recived his Ph.D. degree in Optical Engineering from UESTC in 2015. From 2015 to 2018, Xinge Yu was a postdoctoral research associate in the Center for Bio-Integrated Electronics at Northwestern University and an adjunct research assistant professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where he was working on novel flexible and bio-electronics with Professor John A. Rogers.
