Yan works in turbulence in magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) and space plasmas. She employs analytical, computational, and observational methods to study the turbulence cascade, with applications to dissipation and heating of space plasmas. Her work was published in peer-reviewed journals, including The Astrophysical Journal, Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, Journal of Fluid Mechanics, Physics of Plasmas, Journal of Computational Physics, Physical Review E, and Physics of Fluids etc. Her research on MHD and plasma turbulence was published by Springer as a book titled “Energy Transfer and Dissipation in Plasma Turbulence”.
