Tao was born and raised in Shandong, China. He received his B.S. degree in chemistry from Shanghai Jiao Tong University under the supervision of Prof. Zhaoguo Zhang. He conducted his Ph.D. study with Prof. Jon Antilla at University of South Florida where he worked on the development of new asymmetric organic transformations catalyzed by chiral phosphoric acids and chiral metal phosphates. He then moved to University of Texas to join the Krische group.
