Xiaolin received his B.S. and M.S. in Chemistry from Peking University, Beijing, and a Ph.D. in Biophysics from Harvard University, Cambridge. Xiaolin’s graduate studies focused on wet-chemistry approaches to fabricating aligned single wall carbon nanotubes and the biophysical analysis of dynamic processes in living cells using high time resolution, spatial precision and chemical selectivity strategies.

As a postdoctoral fellow with Dr. Steven Chu at the University of California, Berkeley, Dr. Joe Gray at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and Dr. Frank McCormick at the University of California at San Francisco, Xiaolin established a unique biological system for controlled expression of tagged proteins for single-molecule counting and localization using super resolution imaging based on PALM and STORM principles. Xiaolin investigated the oncogenic processes and intracellular trafficking of Ras-GTP dimer formation and Raf activation.
