Inkyu Han is a multidisciplinary environmental health scientist in exposure assessment and environmental epidemiology.
Environmental exposure and community health are closely linked. Dr. Han’s research team is dedicated to understanding how various environmental hazards affect the health and well-being of individuals and communities. To ensure that individuals and communities have access to clean air, water, and soil, and that hazardous materials are properly managed, his team is committed to reducing the risk of negative health outcomes.
Dr. Han’s research interests also include community-engaged translational science approaches to educate communities on how to reduce the risks of environmental hazards and how to protect community members from elevated exposures. His team is currently investigating the effect of exposure to cleaning and disinfectant products on immunologic response among vulnerable Hispanic women working as domestic cleaners. Other ongoing projects include assessing ambient air microplastics pollution in Philadelphia, exposure assessment of personal care and consumer products among Asian immigrants in New York City, and the impact of climate change on indoor air quality and health in the Philadelphia metropolitan area.
