Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering
Fang Huang earned his B.S. in Physics at the University of Science and Technology of China in 2004 and his Ph.D. in Physics from the University of New Mexico in 2011.
Before joining Purdue, Dr. Huang was a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Cell Biology at Yale School of Medicine, and was a recipient of the James Hudson Brown - Alexander Brown Coxe fellowship from 2013 to 2014.
Dr. Huang is interested in developing high resolution optical imaging methods that are capable of resolving subcellular structures in three dimensions while monitoring their dynamics in live cells and thick tissues with nanometer resolution. With a highly interdisciplinary approach, his research group will develop novel nanoscopy instruments that combine techniques from engineering and physics such as single photon interference, nanofabrication and adaptive optics. The group seeks to invent algorithms that take advantages of concepts in mathematics, statistics and signal processing, such as sparsity, Bayesian inference, parallelized computing and machine learning.
