Overview

Prof Huang is a Professor of Mechanical Engineering at UQ. He joined UQ in 2005 as a Senior Lecturer, and was promoted to Associate Professor in 2008 and Professor in 2011. Prof Huang received his PhD from The University of Western Australia in 1996. He has won a number of prestigious research accolades, including ARC Future Fellowship (2011-2015), ARC Australia Research Fellowship (2005-2010), JSPS Invitation Fellowship (2009), Queensland International Fellowship (2012) and Singapore National Technology Award (1999). He has editorial roles in several international journals, including International Journal of Machine Tool and Manufacture (ERA A*). He was elected as a Fellow of International Society of Nanomanufacturing in 2012. He published over 190 refereed journal papers, 2 books and 4 book chapters.

Prof Huang has established a leading group working on nanomechanics and nanomanufacturing, and founded a world-class laboratory at UQ that is dedicated to fundamental understanding of material removal mechanisms and mechanical characterisation of nanomaterials and nanostructures. Professor Han Huang’s research interests are nanomanufacturing, machining technologies, mechanical characterization of nanostructured materials and nanostructures and nanoparticle based lubrication.

Research Interests

  • Dr Han Huang's research areas are:
    Science and technology: nanomechanics, nanostructured materials, surface science, physical property, mechanical characterization Engineering: Nanotechnology, nanomanufacturing, MEMS design and modeling, materials testing, lubrication, industrial automation

Research Impacts

Prof. Huang began applied research on aerospace applications such as automatic overhaul of turbine vanes. His SMART robotic grinding/polishing system was employed by the aerospace industry for production, for which he was awarded the Singapore National Technology Award. Prof. Huang now specialises in microgrinding technology for applications such as photonics, solar panels, electronics and integrated circuits and even grinding at the nanoscale, several orders of magnitude smaller than those used in aerospace applications.

Prof. Huang also researches on deformation mechanics and mechanical characterisation of micro/nano structures and emerging materials. His research has been continuously funded by industry and the research outcomes were adopted by semiconductor industries for improving their product quality.
