FAN Lab: inFrastructure, AI and urban Nexus
The mission of the FAN Lab (https://fanchaolab.com/), directed by Dr. Chao Fan in the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering and Earth Sciences at Clemson University, is to create new knowledge and methods in integrated intelligence to derive transformative solutions for global challenges at the nexus of human, infrastructure and natural environment under ever-changing climate conditions, towards sustainability, resiliency, equity and livability. We have a fundamental and highly interdisciplinary research agenda, which falls into three focus areas: (1) Changing Climate & AI; (2) New Technologies and the Environment; and (3) Connected Infrastructure and Human Dynamics. Equipped with ample computing and data resources, broad collaborations, and a free working environment, the FAN Lab always values the passion for impactful work. Every Year we seek for technically strong and self-motivated researchers to join us on our mission.
Dr. Chao Fan is a new Assistant Professor in the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering and Earth Sciences at Clemson University. He received his Ph.D. in Civil Engineering from Texas A&M University. His research focuses on urban nexus computing, seeking to develop transformative solutions for urban sustainability, resilience, equity, and livability. He has proposed "Integrated Intelligence" as a research paradigm that uses big data and artificial intelligence to propose solutions to global urban challenges, including climate change, infrastructure systems, and human dynamics. His team's work has been featured in more than 20 international news outlets, including ASCE Civil Engineering Magazine and Science Daily. He also serves as a reviewer for 35 peer-reviewed journals and as a program committee member for 11 multidisciplinary conferences.
