Qiping Fan, DrPH, MS

Welcome to my website! My name is Qiping Fan, and I am a tenure-track Assistant Professor of Epidemiology at Clemson University Department of Public Health Sciences. I am a public health researcher with expertise in maternal and child health, mental health, and digital health. 

My professional experience is on Linkedin. My research activities are presented on ResearchGate and Google Scholar.

I received a Master of Science (MS) Degree in Global Health from Duke University Graduate School, where I studied epidemiology, quantitative and qualitative research methods and data analysis, comparative health systems, maternal and child health, and mental health. I researched postpartum depression in Sri Lanka as the principal investigator, collaborated on research about hypertension management in Nepal in a community-based setting, and examined maternal health service disparities in Ethiopia using national datasets. 

I received my Doctoral degree in Public Health (DrPH) from Texas A&M University with training in health behaviors, survival analysis, meta-analysis, policy analysis, public health practice, leadership, community health development, intervention design, and program evaluation. I also interned or volunteered in multiple public sectors, private sectors, companies, NGOs, and higher education institutions.

More about me 

As a first-generation college student, I can relate well to the financial, mental, and physical challenges that people face. I find great joy in helping my loved ones and am grateful for the support I've received on my own journey. 

Fun fact: In Sri Lanka, I spent one week for meditation in a rural mountain meditation center—no electricity, no internet, no air-conditioning.
