Description of Clinical Expertise

Dr. Han's clinical interests focus on treatment of infections due to multidrug-resistant organisms, including those due to methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE)

Description of Research Expertise

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).
