Dr. Yu Xia earned her B.S. (1999) in Chemistry from Lanzhou University, China, M.S. (2002) from Shanghai Institute of Material Medical, CASs, China, and Ph.D. (2006) under the supervision of Professor Scott A. McLuckey from Purdue University, USA. After postdoctoral training with Prof. Graham R. Cooks at Purdue, Dr. Xia took positions as Assistant Professor and Associate Professor at the Department of Chemistry, Purdue University. She is currently a Professor at the Department of Chemistry, Tsinghua University, Beijing, China. Dr. Xia utilizes radical reactions as a unique approach to achieve enhanced bioanalysis via mass spectrometry. In particular, her recent research emphasizes on developing lipidomic tools capable of resolving structural isomers. Her work has resulted in over 90 peer-reviewed publications and book chapters. Dr. Xia received ASMS Research Award (2013) and served as Secretary of ASMS from 2015-2017. She is currently on the editorial board of the Journal of the American Society of Mass Spectrometry.
