I read this in another thread:-
Use either "than me" or "than I am." Purists may tell you that the latter is the correct choice, but you'll certainly hear the former.
So in these sentences which is correct an why? He is taller than me, or he is taller than I am.

Hi,
they are both equally good and mean exactly the same. Most people probably use the "than me" version more often, probably because it's shorter. Emotion: smile
He is taller than I

Both the sentances are correct. first is informal and the other one is formal.
If you want to follow what a grammarian has to say, the following posted earlier is reproduced for your information.

If you use a personal pronoun on its own after than, it must be an object pronoun such as 'me' or 'him.' It used to be considered correct to use a subject pronoun such as 'I' or 'he', but this now sounds very old-fashoined.

My brother is younger than me.
Lamin is shorter than her.

However, if the pronoun is the subject of a clause, you use a subject pronoun.

They knew my past much better than she did.
He's taller than I am.

(Collins Cobuild English Usage)

My brothers are taller than I
