Personal Profile

Dr. Huang received the B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in radio physics from the School of Electronic Information at Wuhan University, Wuhan, Hubei, China, in 1995, 1997, and 2001, respectively. He completed an M.Eng. and a Postdoctoral Fellowship in electrical and computer engineering at Memorial University, St. Johns, Newfoundland, Canada, in 2004 and 2007, respectively.

From 2008 to 2010, he was a Design Engineer with Rutter Technologies, St. John’s, NF, Canada. Since 2010, he has been with the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science, Memorial University, where he received an early tenure and promotion to Associate Professor in 2015. His past and present research interests include the mapping of oceanic surface parameters via high-frequency ground wave radar, X-band marine radar and, more recently, Global Navigation Satellite Systems. He has published more than 140 research papers. His teaching involves engineering mathematics and electrical engineering courses.

Dr. Huang served as a Technical Program Co-chair of the IEEE Newfoundland Electrical and Computer Engineering Conference (NECEC) in 2012 and 2013. He has been Technical Program Committee member and reviewer for many IEEE international conferences such as RadarCon, ICC, GLOBECOM, IGARSS, and Oceans. He has been the Lead Guest Editor of the special issue on Advances in Coastal HF and Microwave (S or X band) Radars for the International Journal of Antennas and Propagation. He also serves as a proposal reviewer for Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) and regular reviewer for more than 30 international journals. He was a member of the American Geophysical Union, and he is presently a senior member of IEEE.
