Xiaoxiong ‘George’ Wang is a postdoctoral associate in Prof. Elimelech’s research group at Yale University. His research is focusing on the development of electroactive reactive membranes for water treatment and membrane fouling mitigation.

Xiaoxiong received his Ph.D. degree in Environmental Engineering at Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, and B.S. degree in Chemical Engineering at Tsinghua University. He was supervised by Prof. Hongying Hu during doctoral study and his major research was the treatment of reverse osmosis concentrate from municipal wastewater reclamation plants by microalgae cultivation.

Outside of the lab, Xiaoxiong loves singing. He has participated in more than 50 performances as soloist or tenor of chorus, including National Musical Performance ‘The Road to Revival’ for the 60th Anniversary Celebration of China and Tsinghua University’s Centenary Celebration Gala. He served as the head of Tsinghua Chorus and the minister of the Culture Department, Graduate Union of Tsinghua University. Other than that, Xiaoxiong enjoys spending time with his family.
