Yikai Su received the Ph.D. degree in EE from Northwestern University, Evanston, IL, USA in 2001. He worked at Crawford Hill Laboratory of Bell Laboratories and he joined the Shanghai Jiao Tong University as a Full Professor in 2004. His research areas cover silicon photonic devices for information transmission and switching. He has over 400 publications in international journals and conferences, with more than 4000 citations (scopus search). He holds 6 US patents and ~50 Chinese patents.

Prof. Su served as an associate editor of APL Photonics (2016- ) and Photonics Research (2013-2019), a topical editor of Optics Letters (2008-2014), and a guest editor of IEEE JSTQE (2008/2011). 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 CLEO (2016-2018), ECOC (2013-2017), OFC (2011-2013), OECC 2008, CLEO-PR 2007, and LEOS (2005-2007). Prof. Su is a senior member of IEEE and a member of OSA.
