Chris Chan

about Chris

Chris Chan, Ph.D. is an experienced data and research scientist with 10+ years of experience in computational modeling and statistical analysis. He has extensive experience with solving complex data-driven problems using state-of-the-art machine learning and artificial intelligence tools, large-scale computer simulations, and data mining and visualization techniques. At SFL Scientific, Chris works with enterprises on a broad range of data science projects involving information extraction of legal documents, image classification, deep learning-based object detection, clinical data optimization, market forecasting, and beyond. He works with business partners and development teams to define and prioritize key business questions, build data acquisition processes, statistical models, and AI analyses that answer key driver questions. Prior to joining SFL Scientific as a senior data scientist, he was a Postdoctoral Fellow at Harvard University, a Postdoctoral Associate at MIT, and Assistant Adjunct Professor at UCLA, with a track record for successful publications and in-depth basic research in Weyl fermion chirality in topological semimetals, examining photocurrents in Weyl semimetals, examining quantum interference in open systems, and applications of photon control and quantum correlation in Markovian and non-Markovian systems. Chris received his Ph.D. in Physics from the University of California, San Diego, and was a physics researcher with expertise in condensed matter physics, working with technical scientists in various leading research institutes across the United States. Chris has extensive knowledge across machine learning, deep learning, MLOps, and developing solutions to scale with modern data management and computation tools.
