Biography

Jie Huang studied Power Engineering at Fuzhou University from 1977 to 1979 and Circuits and Systems at Nanjing University of Science and Technology (NUST) from 1979 to 1982. He got his Master's degree from NUST in 1982 and was a faculty member there from 1982 to 1986. He completed his Ph.D. study in automatic control at the Johns Hopkins University in 1990 and subsequently held a post-doctoral fellow position there until July 1991. From August 1991 to July 1995, he worked In industry in USA. In September 1995, he joined the Department of Mechanical and Automation Engineering, the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK). He is now a professor and chairman of Department of Mechanical and Automation Engineering, CUHK. He has been advisory/guest professors at several universities. He also holds a professorship with Nanjing University of Science and Technology under the Thousand Talents Program, Class B (short term). He served as a Science Advisor to the Leisure and Cultural Services Department of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, and Honorary Advisor to Hong Kong Science Museum.
