Dr. Huang has diverse training in applied mechanics and computational simulation of various material systems. She teaches and conducts research in the areas of mechanics of materials, non-equilibrium thermodynamics, continuum mechanics and nonlinear elasticity.

Her research programs are centered on understanding the structures/mechanics of biological materials (i.e., cardiovascular and musculoskeletal tissue), and the electrochemical-mechanical interactions in energy materials, such as advanced lithium batteries.

At the undergraduate level, Dr. Huang teaches Solid Mechanics (MAE 214) and Strength of Mechanical Components (MAE 316). At the graduate level, Dr. Huang teaches Advanced Solid Mechanics (MAE 541).
