Department of Mechanical and Aerospace EngineeringOUR PEOPLE
Xun HUANG 黄迅
PhD, University of Southampton
Associate Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering

Professor Huang received his BEng degree in Astronautics from Northwestern Polytechnical University in 1999, MEng degree in Automatic Control from Tsinghua University in 2002, and PhD degree in Aeronautics from University of Southampton in 2006, respectively. He was a Visiting Student in Microsoft Research Asia in 2000 (IMU hardware design); a Research Engineer in Control Laboratory of the GE Global Research Center in 2003 (wind turbine control); a Research Fellow and then a Lecturer in University of Southampton from 2006 to 2009. He joined Peking University in 2009, acted as Associate Head in Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics through 2014, and received tenure in 2014. He has received Edison Award of Technology of Excellence (GE 2003), ICBC Teaching Award (PKU 2012), Award of Excellent Young Scholar (NSF China 2013), Newton Advanced Fellowship (Royal Society 2015) and Boeing Teaching Award (PKU 2015). He has been a member of the editorial boards for J. Aeroacoustics and Acta Mechanica Sinica. Professor Huang has industrial and research experiences in aeronautics and astronautics and his current interest mainly focuses on aerospace related acoustic and control problems. Since 2009 he has managed 5 NSFC research projects as principal investigator, and completed about 10 aerospace industry projects in flight and flow control, acoustic imaging and vibration signal processing, and aircraft and aeroengine noise simulation and theoretical modeling.
