Tony Jun Huang
William Bevan Distinguished Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science

Tony Jun Huang received his Ph.D. degree in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) in 2005. His research interests are in the fields of acoustofluidics, optofluidics, and micro/nano systems for biomedical diagnostics and therapeutics. He has authored/co-authored over 270 peer-reviewed journal publications in these fields. His journal articles have been cited more than 27,000 times, as documented at Google Scholar (h-index: 87).He also has 26 issued or pending US/international patents. 

Prof. Huang was elected a fellow (member) of the National Academy of Inventors (USA) and the European Academy of Sciences and Arts. He was also a fellow of the following six professional societies: the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE), the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), the Institute of Physics (UK), and the Royal Society of Chemistry (UK).

Huang's research has gained international recognition through numerous prestigious awards and honors including a 2010 National Institutes of Health (NIH) Director's New Innovator Award, a 2011 JALA Top Ten Breakthroughs of the Year Award, a 2012 Outstanding Young Manufacturing Engineer Award from the Society for Manufacturing Engineering, a 2013 Faculty Scholar Medal from The Pennsylvania State University, a 2013 American Asthma Foundation (AAF) Scholar Award, the 2014 IEEE Sensors Council Technical Achievement Award from the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), the 2017 Analytical Chemistry Young Innovator Award from the American Chemical Society (ACS), the 2019 Van C. Mow Medal from the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), and the 2019 Technical Achievement Award from the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS).
