Hsiao-Ying Shadow Huang

Associate Professor

In addition to her duties as Associate Professor, Dr. Hsiao-Ying Shadow Huang also serves as Director of MAE’s MS Non-Thesis Program.

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. She is currently a Faculty Fellow of External Awards in the Office for Faculty Excellence at NC State University.

Her research programs are centered on understanding the electrochemical-mechanical interactions in energy materials, such as advanced lithium batteries, and the structures/mechanics of biological materials (i.e., cardiovascular and musculoskeletal tissue).  She has been recognized by the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE, 2017) from the White House, the NSF CAREER Award (2016) and the University Teacher Award (2020) for her work at NC State.

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) and Modern Plasticity (MAE 730).
