Dr. Pan’s research spans many aspects in computer science. His work has included research in parallel computing, distributed computing, and grid computing, encompassing architecture, algorithms, and performance evaluation in these areas. For example, he proposed a new computing model based on optical pipelined buses and designed many novel parallel algorithms based on the computing model. He has also published many results in the areas of optical networks and wireless networks. Recently, his research interests have shifted towards bioinformatics and cloud computing.
In bioinformatics, his work focuses on protein structure prediction, motif finding in proteins, multiple sequence alignment using different scoring functions and algorithms, clustering methods, and module/complex identification in protein interaction networks. Data mining, graph algorithms, parallel computing, and machine learning methods are used in the research.
Cloud computing has emerged rapidly as an exciting new paradigm that offers a challenging model of cyber-physical services and poses fascinating problems. Cloud computing makes data truly mobile; a user can simply access a chosen cloud with any internet-accessible device. Cloud computing overlaps some of the concepts of cluster, distributed, grid, service, ubiquitous, utility, and virtual computing; however, it has emerged from these computing domains and now has its own meaning. Dr. Pan focuses on the following issues in cloud computing: security, fault-tolerance, and autonomic computing
