Prof. Xu joined the Computer Science Department of Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU) after he received his PhD degree in Computer Science from Hong Kong University of Science and Technology in 2002. He obtained his BEng degree in Computer Science and Engineering from Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China in 1998. Prior to that, he received his secondary education from Suzhou High School from 1991 to 1994. Prof. Xu has been a visiting scholar at Pennsylvania State University, University Park (in Summer 2005) and a senior visiting fellow at Fudan University (in Winter 2009). He serves as a director of the Blockchain and FinTech Lab and leads the Database Research Group at Hong Kong Baptist University.

Prof. Xu has more than 200 publications as edited books and proceedings, invited book chapters, and technical papers in refereed journals and conferences including SIGMOD, VLDB, KDD, MobiSys, ICDE, TODS, TKDE, and VLDBJ. He has been invited to serve on organizing and program committees for dozens of international conferences including SIGMOD, VLDB, ICDE, and WWW. Prof. Xu was a recipient of HKBU President's Award for Outstanding Performance in Scholarly Work (2017), HKBU President's Award for Outstanding Performance in Teaching (2018), and VLDB Distinguished Reviewer Award (2019). He is a senior member of IEEE and CCF, and a member of IEEE Technical Committee on Data Engineering and CCF Technical Committee on Databases. He has served as an executive committee member and vice chairman of ACM Hong Kong Chapter. He has been an Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Knowledge and Data Engineering (TKDE) and Proceedings of VLDB Endowment (PVLDB). He is a member of the Engineering Panel of the Hong Kong Research Grants Council (2016-).
