Scholarship Description:

Linran Fan attained a bachelor’s degree in Physics from Peking University in 2011, followed by a doctoral degree in Electrical Engineering from Yale University in 2017. He served as a postdoctoral fellow at the California Institute of Technology in 2018, before starting as an assistant professor at the Wyant College of Optical Sciences, University of Arizona in August 2018. He will join the faculty of the Chandra Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Texas at Austin in August 2023. The PI and their group have consistently published highly impactful papers in prestigious journals such as Nature Nanotechnology (2023), Nature Physics (2022), Science Advances (2021, 2018), PRL (2020), Nature Photonics (2019, 2016), and others.

UT Austin is the flagship institution of the University of Texas System and ranks among the top 3050 universities globally in major university rankings (ARWU, QS, THE, US News, etc.). The University of Texas at Austin is placed No. 7 amongst the top engineering schools, and No. 10 amongst the best electrical engineering programs (US News). The campus is located in the capital of Texas – Austin, considered one of the most liveable cities in the US. Austin is also the site of rapid growth, providing ample opportunities for high-tech jobs.
