Description of Research Expertise

Dr. Fan’s interests are in the field of imaging analytics and informatics, and more generally in computational imaging.

Much of his previous work has focused on computational neuroimaging in neuropsychiatry, which will continue to be a point of focus. However his program is expected to expand into other areas requiring advanced imaging analytics, especially towards the interface between imaging and genomics.
