Academic Profile

Dr. Changjin Huang joined Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in September 2018 as an Assistant Professor. He received his B.ENG. degree in Thermal Science and Energy Engineering from University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) in 2008, and then Ph.D. degree in Engineering Science and Mechanics from Pennsylvania State University in 2014. Before joining NTU, he worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Northwestern University from 2014-2015, and then as a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) from 2016-2018. Dr. Huang’s research interests generally lie at the intersection of mechanics, materials, engineering and biology. His central research focus is to provide mechanistic understanding of the underlying principles that control the mechanical properties and stress state of biological materials and biomaterials, and how changes in mechanical properties and stress state affect their functions.
