Dr. Fan is a Professor at Nanyang Technological University (NTU), School of Physical and Mathematical Sciences. His PhD project was Brillouin spectroscopy of acoustic phonons of porous silicon and phase-change materials. His postdoc research in Germany was about patterned growth and optical properties of ZnO nanowires, and in Cambridge he worked on ferroelectric microtubes. Since joining NTU in 2008, he works on exploring new electrode materials and understanding their functions in energy conversion and storage processes, including catalysis for hydrogen generation, new redox batteries and flexible energy devices. He pioneered the application of atomic layer deposition and high-power plasma in synthesizing and tailoring energy materials. Currently his group focuses on developping high-energy-density and low-cost Zn-ion batteries.

Dr. Fan widely collaborates. He has co-authored  280 journal papers with an H-index of 95. He has been recognized as Highly Cited Researcher consecutively since 2016 by Clarivate Analytics. He is currently the Editor-in-Chief of Materials Today Energy, and editorial/advisory board member of many journals including Energy and Environmental Sciences, Advanced Science, Next Materials, and a few Materials Today series journals.
