Fan Zhang earned a B.S. in Computer Science from MIT and currently works as a graduate student at the Decentralized Information Group at MIT CSAIL with Professor Hal Abelson. Her research focuses on increasing the transparency of smart phone applications through the development of an automated compliance-checking tool for mobile app privacy policies. During her undergraduate years, she developed an interest in policy and international work and earned a minor in Applied International Studies. As a senior, she conducted research on the privacy implications of cross-border transfers in the cloud, collaborating with members from Peking University and the Berkman Center at Harvard University. As a junior, she spent a year abroad studying at the University of Cambridge, where she co-founded a new society which publicized the relevancy of computer science to students across all disciplines. Fan also enjoys teaching. She has taught middle and high school students from low-income families in New Mexico as well as college students at Dalian University of Technology in China, and she looks forward to being a TA during the upcoming fall semester.
