Dr. Tan is an interdisciplinary cognitive neuroscientist whose research interest lies broadly in using neuroimaging techniques (MRI, PET, DOT), genetics, and psychosocial factors to understand the earliest risk markers of neurodegenerative diseases and cognitive decline. Dr. Tan's research in the cognitive neuroscience and genetics of aging and dementia has been published in high impact journals such as Acta Neuropathologica, Brain, and Annals of Neurology.

Dr. Tan received his PhD in Psychology (Cognitive Neuroscience) from the University of Illinois and his BSocSci with First Class Honours from NUS. Before joining NTU, he was a Postdoctoral Scholar in the Neuroradiology Section of the Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF).
