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. From 2008 to 2010, he worked as a research engineer at ArcelorMittal (the largest steel company in the world) in Maizieres-les-Metz, France. His research work in ArcelorMittal focused on the development of new advanced steels for automotive applications. Dr. Huang joined University of Hong Kong in 2010 as an Assistant Professor, and was promoted to Associate Professor with tenure in 2016. Dr. Huang’s research interests focus on two areas: (1) fundamentals of microstructure-property relationship and phase transformation of advanced steels, and (2) development of lightweight materials for automotive applications. Both experimental and modelling works are involved in his research. His research projects have been well funded by external funding bodies such as General Research Fund and Innovation and Technology Fund, National Science Foundation of China, and industries from Europe and China (e.g. ArcelorMittal France, General Motors, Ansteel, Baosteel). Dr. Huang has published 80+ SCI journal papers on top international journals in the field such as Science, Acta Materialia, Scripta Materialia, JMPS and IJP. Dr. Huang delivered 20+ keynote/invited talks at major international conferences such as PTM 2015, THERMEC, MRS, TMS etc. Dr. Huang is an active reviewer for 20+ SCI journals including Science, Nature Communications, Acta Materialia, Scripta Materialia etc. Dr. Huang is Editorial Board Members of Metallurgical and Materials Transactions A (MMTA), Materials Science and Technology (MST) and Journal of Materials Science and Technology (JMST).
