Prof. Huang received his BEng and MSc 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 lightweight automotive applications. Prof. Huang joined University of Hong Kong in 2010 as an Assistant Professor, and was promoted to Associate Professor with tenure in 2016 and full Professor in 2019. Prof. Huang’s research interests focus on two areas: (1) fundamentals of microstructure-property relationship and phase transformation of advanced steels and alloys, and (2) development of lightweight materials for automotive applications. Both experimental and modelling works are involved in his research. Being the PI, Prof. Huang secured funding from Collaborative Research Fund (UGC, HK), Research Impact Fund (UGC, HK), National Key R&D Program (國家重點研發計劃, mainland China),  General Research Fund (UGC, HK), Innovation and Technology Fund (HK), National Natural Science Foundation of China (mainland China), and industries from Europe and China (e.g. ArcelorMittal France, General Motors, Ansteel, Baosteel etc). Prof. Huang has published 100+ SCI journal papers on top international journals in the field such as Science, Acta Materialia, Scripta Materialia, JMPS and IJP etc.
