Dr. Pan is currently a postdoctoral research fellow for the ARC Centre of Excellence for Transformative Meta-Optical Systems (ARC TMOS) under the supervision of the centre's Chief Investigators, Prof. Mariusz Martyniuk and Prof. Lorenzo Faraone, at the University of Western Australia (UWA).

His research interests lie in infrared-sensitive materials & devices and their integration with metasurfaces for applications in next-generation infrared sensors.

Aside from research Dr. Pan also represents UWA as an early career researcher on the TMOS Outreach committee, which aims to advocate for the public awareness of science, specifically meta-optics, by organising and undertaking outreach activities led by the Centre.

Dr. Pan was awarded his PhD in Microelectronics and Solid-state Electronics from Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) in 2017.

His PhD research was on molecular beam epitaxial (MBE) growth and characterization of III-V optoelectronic materials & devices such as lasers and infrared detectors.

Since 26/02/2018, Dr. Pan worked as a full-time research associate/fellow in the Microelectronics Research Group (MRG), the School of Engineering at UWA to continue his research on epitaxial growth and characterisation of semiconducting materials, particularly II-VI infrared semiconductors.

Dr. Pan has registered on the supervisor panel at UWA and co-supervised two PhD students.

Dr. Pan has published more than 45 peer-reviewed papers and 1 book chapter. Most of the papers have been published in well-respected journals of this field, such as Nano research, ASC photonics, Sci. Rep., Appl. Phys. Lett., J. Appl. Phys., etc. Dr. Pan is a review editor for Frontiers in Electronics. He is also a regular reviewer for a number of scientific journals including Infrared Phys. Technol. and J. Electron. Mater.
