He is also the principal investigator for the UKRI Interdisciplinary Circular Economy Centre for Circular Metals. He has published over 400 scientific papers with an H-Index of 57 and a total citation of 12554 (Google Scholar). He has led a wide range of research projects as principal investigator with grants totalling over £70M. He has been chairman of 4 major international conferences and members international scientific committee of 6 international conferences. He was the co-chairmen of the Casting and Solidification Society (IOM3, 2012-2018), is a Board Member of the Light Metals Division (IOM3), a Fellow of the Institute of IOM3 and the Institute of Cast Metal Engineers (ICME). He was the recipient of the Elegant Work Prize (1995), the Cook/Ablett Award (2003) and Dowding Medal and Prize (2012) of the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3). Fan’s research has been focused on (1) understanding of early stages of solidification covering prenucleation, heterogeneous nucleation, Grain initiation and Grain refinement; (2) developing metallic materials for closed-loop recycling; and (3) developing innovative techniques for processing light metals.
