Indiana University Bloomington School of Public Health
Dr. Khan is currently an Assistant Professor with the School of Public Health at Indiana University Bloomington. He served as a Postdoctoral Research Scholar with Dr. Rohlman. Dr. Khan's research interests are centered on the broad area of environmental epidemiology with specific emphasis on vulnerable populations. His current research activities can be categorized into two major areas: 1) understanding the neurobehavioral (NB) health effects of environmental and occupational exposures with specific emphasis on the mechanism of action of neurotoxic contaminants and 2) evaluating the efficacy of community-based interventions for reducing the risks of environmental exposures and chronic health effects in the areas of water, hygiene and occupational noise exposure. He has investigated neurobehavioral and mental health effects of metals, air pollutants and pesticides in children and adolescents in the United States, Egypt, Ecuador and South Asian countries including Bangladesh. He is also examining early-life endocrine-disruption potential of environmental contaminants and concurrently exploring if such disruption has any adverse impact on brain development later in life. His current intervention research program in the U.S. and abroad is also tracing suitable low-cost educational intervention for children and adolescents for promoting handwashing, safe water and hearing protection behavior.
