Senior Research Fellow

PhD QUT, MPhil(Electronics) GU, B(OptoElectronicEng) HUST

Dr Fan Yi is a Senior Research Fellow for the Contact Lens and Visual Optics Laboratory (CLVOL), in the School of Optometry and Vision Science, and Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation, at the Queensland University of Technology (QUT), in Brisbane. Fan has been employed in this role since 2016. From 2011 to 2015, he worked as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the same QUT research laboratory, CLVOL.

Fan’s training is in the area of laser and optical engineering. In 2002, Fan graduated from the Huazhong University of Science and Technology, China, with a Bachelor of OptoElectronic Engineering degree in Laser Devices Design and Fibre Communication System. In 2006, Fan completed a Master of Philosophy degree in Electronics in 2006 at Griffith University, Brisbane, Australia.

In 2007, Fan commenced his PhD at QUT in Brisbane, under the supervision of Professor Robert Iskander and Professor Michael Collins. In 2010, he completed his PhD thesis, “Wavefront aberrations and the depth of focus of the human eye”. Dr Fan Yi designed and constructed an adaptive optics system during his PhD study and used this system to investigate the impact of different types of wavefront aberration to the depth of focus of the human eye.

Fan’s current research interests include visual optics, optical system design for ophthalmic application, and wavefront aberration. His particular interest is in developing optimized optical correction for presbyopia.
