Han is a Research Associate at Electrochemical Science and Engineering and works with Dr.Monica Marinescu and Prof.Gregory Offer. His current research focuses on building up a computational framework to help optimise and design Li-ion batteries.

Before joining Imperial College London, he worked as a Research Fellow at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University as a recipient of an RGC Postdoctoral Fellowship (given to only 25 exceptional young scholars worldwide).

He obtained PhD in Mechanical Engineering at Imperial College London (2020) and was fully funded by Imperial College President's PhD scholarship.(The most prestigious PhD scholarship at Imperial College). Originally, he comes from Hunan, China. he finished his undergraduate and master's studies at Central South University (BS, 2013) and Tongji University(MS, 2016) respectively.
