The theme of Pan’s research lies in understanding the behaviors of bimetallic nanomaterials in reactive gaseous environments.He studies the dynamic elemental distribution and arrangements to the atomic level with advanced in situ microscopy techniques. Pan received his bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering from National Taiwan University.

The Graduate College’s Dissertation Completion Fellowships help outstanding students complete the doctoral degree by providing a one-year stipend of $20,000, along with coverage of tuition and other fees. The intent is to free fellows from assistantships and other work obligations, allowing them to devote themselves full-time to the completion of the dissertation.
