Dr. Huang Xiaoyan is currently an Associate Professor in the School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. He received his Bachelor degree in physics from Nanjing University, Master degree in acoustics from Academia Sinica and Ph.D. degree from Cambridge University.

His research areas cover acoustics, unsteady flow control, aero-elastic instabilities, thermal fluids and microfluidics.

The research in acoustics includes sound wave scattering from tube bundles, active control of wheel squeals, acoustic chaos, and recently on nonlinear resonances in miniature devices. The research on flow instabilities covers feedback control of compressor surges, shear layer oscillations and vortex shedding from cylinders. It has recently been extended to rotating disk flutter in disk drives.

Current research activities are focused on microfluidics, nonlinear acoustics and aero-elastic instabilities in hard disk drives.
