Dr. Huang received his BEng and MPhil in Mechanics from Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU) in 2002 and 2004, respectively, and his PhD in Materials Science in 2008 from Delft University of Technology (TU Delft), The Netherlands. Dr. Huang was a Research Engineer at ArcelorMittal in Maizieres-les-Metz, France, from 2008 to 2010. Dr. Huang joined The University of Hong Kong in 2010 as an Assistant Professor and was promoted to Associate Professor with tenure in 2016. Dr. Huang is an Editorial Board Member of Materials Science and Technology and Metallurgical and Materials Transactions A. Dr. Huang’s works have been published in top journals including SCIENCE, Acta Materialia, Journal of Mechanics and Physics of Solids and International Journal of Plasticity.

Dr. Huang's research interests focus on two areas: (1) fundamentals of microstructure-property relationship and phase transformation of metals and alloys, and (2) development of lightweight high-strength steels for automotive applications. Both experimental and modelling works are involved in his research. Dr. Huang's research projects include fundamental projects as well as industry-oriented projects and have been well funded by General Research Fund, Innovation and Technology Fund, National Science Foundation of China, and industries from Europe and China (e.g. ArcelorMittal France, General Motors, Ansteel).
