Prof Huang received his B.S. and M.S. degrees in Engineering Thermophysics from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China in 1999 and 2001. He worked in industry from 2001 to 2004. In 2008, he received his Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, USA. After graduation, he worked as a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of California, Berkeley and Lawrance Berkeley National Laboratory. He joined the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology in 2010. He has research experience in both theoretical modeling and experimental fabrications/measurements. His research interests are in the broad area of energy transport, conversion and storage.
