Research Interests

Han specializes in employing in-vitro assays to study the toxicity of xenobiotics and to determine the biotransformation profiles of thyroid disrupting chemicals, in terms of their metabolic kinetics and pathways, through analytical chemistry platforms in combination with environmental chemistry and ecotoxicological trials. His work contributes to the EU-funded project ERGO under the Horizon 2020 programme.
