He was an adjunct researcher in the wireless and networking group at the Microsoft Research, Asia, and a Visiting Assistant Professor at the Department of Computer Science, University of California, Davis, USA. He was a William and Leila fellow at Stanford University, where he did his PhD in Electrical Engineering and a minor in business administration (with a concentration in management of operations, information and technology). His PhD thesis, supervised by Professor Fouad Tobagi, was on the provisioning of scalable distributed video services.

Gary Chan got his BSE in Electrical Engineering from Princeton University and did his undergraduate research on high-speed networks with Professor Hisashi Kobayashi. In 1992-93, he was also a research intern with Prof Richard Linke at the NEC Research Institute, Princeton, working on optical lasers and interconnects. At Princeton, he was the recipient of Charles Ira Young Memorial Tablet and Medal, awarded "to the student who excels in research in EE." He also received the POEM Newport Award of Excellence, awarded "to a senior who has demonstrated high scholastic achievement and also shown high potential for leadership in the field of photonics, electro-optics or optoelectronic materials." He won the Sigma Xi book award in 1993. He is a member of honors societies Tau Beta Pi, Sigma Xi, and Phi Beta Kappa, and a senior member of IEEE since 2003. Professor Chan has co-founded and transferred his research results to several startups.
