Dr. Lu Fan received the BSc (2003) degree in Computer Networking from Nanjing University of Science and Technology, Nanjing, China, and the MSc (2005) degree with distinction in IT Software Systems and the PhD (2009) degree in Computer Science from Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, UK. His research interests include Distributed Systems, Peer-to-Peer Computing, Grid Computing, Cloud Computing, Network Security, Digital Forensics, Massively Multiplayer Online Games, and pervasive e-Health applications.
Currently he is a Senior Research Fellow of Centre for Distributed Computing, Networking and Security, School of Computing, Edinburgh Napier University, Edinburgh, UK. Also, he is the Technical Lead of multiple research projects, including DACAR, Trusted Service, Cloud4Health and sa.FIRE. He designed and implemented a Cloud-based e-Health platform, which reinforces the integrity, security, confidentiality and auditability of medical data throughout their life cycle, and facilitates the development, integration, and scalable and cost-effective delivery of e-Health services. The technology excellence of this e-Health platform is a finalist in the BCS & Computing UK IT Industry Awards 2011, the IET Innovation Awards 2011, and Scottish Digital Technology Awards 2012.
