Fan is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at University of California, Los Angeles, working with Marc Suchard. She completed her PhD in Statistics at Duke University under Alexander Volfovsky, during which she won the ASA SBSS Student Paper Award for her work on stochastic epidemic modeling on dynamic networks. She has great interest in developing statistical methods for knowledge discovery from complex data sets with partial observations. In particular, her research has been inspired by real-world data-related problems in infectious disease transmission, social network analysis, and sports analytics. Upon joining UCLA, she has been actively involved in the Observational Health Data Sciences and Informatics (OHDSI) research network, developing statistical methodologies and computing tools for reliable evidence extraction from large-scale observational health data sets.
