Dr. Hsiao-Ying Shadow HuangFaculty
Huang is interested in lithium batteries, energy storage systems, biological tissues, and biomechanics.
Dr. Huang has diverse training in mechanics, materials science and biomechanics. Her research group aims to contribute to the development of the next generation of rechargeable battery materials. Currently, her research focuses on investigating degradation mechanisms in lithium battery materials via theoretical and computational approaches. This work could aid in developing safer, higher capacity lithium batteries.
The research group also aims to develop a better understanding of the micromechanics of biological tissues. Current research focuses on developing computational models capable of simulating cell-tissue-organ interactions in biological tissues. This work is aimed at improving our understanding of pathologies involving mechanotransduction, and in developing tissue engineering strategies for tissue repair.
