Professor Fan joined UF in 2003.  His research focus is to develop microfluidics and BioMEMS technologies and apply them to biomedical applications.  Microfluidics involves device fabrication and manufacturing, study of fluid behavior in microscale, and exploiting the devices for a variety of applications including point-of-care testing, environmental monitoring, and detection of pathogens in the field.  

Research Interests: 

Microfluidics, bioMEMS (biomedical microelectromechanical systems), sensors, medical diagnostics, and bioengineering

Teaching Interests: 

Fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, microfluidics

Ph. D., 1994, University of Alberta
