Dr. Han's research areas lie in the merging of techniques from databases and artificial intelligence, as well as the computing aspects of sciences. Specifically, she develops algorithms and systems for web semantics, text/data mining and management, biomedical and healthcare informatics, and information assurance and security in distributed computing environments. Her research focuses on developing theories and building intelligent systems to 1) understand, mine, and manage unconventional data types, and 2) integrate/interchange information securely and seamlessly from heterogeneous data sources for semantic interoperability.


Dr. Han currently teaches Computer Science 1, Algorithm Analysis and Design, and Senior Project. Prior to joining Marshall, Dr. Han taught at LeMoyne-Owen College in Memphis, Tennessee. Her courses at LeMoyne-Owen included Database Management, Database Programming, Algorithms, Data Structures with C++, Introduction to Unix, Programming in Java I & II, and Introduction to Microcomputers.


Dr. Han is a member of the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence and the Association for Computing Machinery, as well as the special interest groups on Knowledge, Discovery, and Data Mining; Management of Data; and Applied Computing.


She has served as a referee for more than 20 journals, including the Association for Computing Machinery's journal of Transactions on Information Systems, Information Polity, the Journal of Biomedical Informatics, and the Journal of Web Semantics.
