Fan Wei, Ph.D.

Institute for Advanced Study

Fan Wei will start as a postdoc at the Institute of Advanced Study in September 2019; in 2020, she will be at Princeton University as a postdoc researcher, under the fellowship for a year and then as an instructor. Wei received her Ph.D. from Stanford University under the supervision of Jacob Fox.

Her research interests are centered around combinatorics, graph theory and applications to theoretical computer science, often involving probabilistic, analytic and algebraic methods. In particular, in the past few years, she has focused on extremal combinatorics (with emphasis on regularity methods and their applications), property testing, random graph models and graph algorithms.
