Jointly trained at The University of Michigan and Peking University, Dr. Han obtained his Ph.D. degree in Fluid Mechanics from Peking University in 2017.

The School’s Dr Timm Krüger is seeking to improve our understanding of ‘placental insufficiency’ through a new three-year project funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), which will investigate the role of placental structure, blood flow and nutrient transport in pre-eclampsia and foetal growth restriction. Pre-term and stillbirths affect up to 10% of all deliveries, including in developed countries such as the UK.
