Dr. Han's clinical interests focus on treatment of recurrent skin and soft-tissue infections (SSTIs), including those due to MRSA.
Dr. Han's research focuses on healthcare-associated infections, antibiotic resistance, and antibiotic use, with a focus on infections due to multidrug-resistant organisms across inter-related healthcare settings (e.g., post-acute care).
