Fan is a Ph.D. candidate at the Department of Political Science. Her research examines why racial groups come into conflict or cooperation with one another, the effect of higher education on Latino political behavior, and campaign strategies in majority-minority districts. Her dissertation focuses on how - and under what conditions- discrimination contributes to perceptions of “linked fate” amongst Latinos, Asians and Muslims in the U.S., as well as inter-minority political alliances between these marginalized groups.
