     Yikai Su received the B.S. degree from the Hefei University of Technology, China, in 1991, the M.S. degree from the Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics (BUAA), China, in 1994, and the Ph.D. degree in EE from Northwestern University, Evanston, IL, in 2001. He worked at Crawford Hill Laboratory of Bell Laboratories before he joined the Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Shanghai, China, as a Full Professor in 2004. He served as the associate department chair of Electronic Engineering in 2006-2012, and has been director of Center for Opto-electronic Materials and Devices since 2011. His research areas cover micro and nano photonic devices for information transmission, signal processing, and displays. He has over 200 publications in international journals and conferences (H-index = 20), including more than 30 invited papers, and 8 postdeadline papers. He holds 6 US patents and ~40 Chinese patents.
    Prof. Su serves as a topical editor of Optics Letters (2008-2014), a guest editor of IEEE JSTQE (2008/2011), and a feature editor of Applied Optics (2008). He is the chair of IEEE Photonics Society Shanghai chapter, a general co-chair of ACP 2012, a TPC co-chair of ACP 2011 and APCC 2009. He also served as a TPC member of a large number of international conferences including OFC (2011-2013), ECOC (2013- ), OECC 2008, CLEO-PR 2007, and LEOS (2005-2007). Prof. Su is a senior member of IEEE and a member of OSA.
