Wai-Tong (Louis) Fan

Greetings! I am a Van Vleck Visiting Assistant Professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, working in the probability research group in the Math department. Before coming to Madison, I received a one-year postdoctoral training at the department of Statistics and Operations Research at University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, mentored by Professor Amarjit Budhiraja. I earned my PhD at the Mathematics Department at the University of Washington-Seattle, supervised by Professors Zhen-Qing Chen and Krzysztof Burdzy. 

I was born in Hong Kong, where I obtained my MPhil degree in Hong Kong University of Science and Technology under the supervision of Professor Shiu-Yuen Cheng, and also my Bsc degree in Chinese University of Hong Kong. I enjoy reading about natural sciences and reaching out to nature. I’m particularly interested in hiking, kayaking and figure skating. 

Starting from August 2018, I will be joining the Department of Mathematics at Indiana University-Bloomington as a tenure-track assistant professor. My research is partially supported by NSF Award DMS-1804492.
