April 09, 2015

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- Tony Jun Huang, professor of engineering science and mechanics, has been appointed a fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry.

This is the third fellowship announcement this year for Huang, who was also elected a fellow of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering, and the Institute of Physics.

Huang joined Penn State in 2005 as the James Henderson Assistant Professor in the Department of Engineering Science and Mechanics.

He leads the Acoustofluidics group, a multidisciplinary team that conducts research at the interface of physics, materials, engineering and biomedicine. The group works to develop innovative acoustofluidic technologies and use them to solve challenging problems in the fields of biological studies, medical diagnostics and therapeutics. Additional areas of focus include optofluidics, microfluidics, MEMS/NEMS and nanophotonics.

Huang has authored or co-authored more than 140 peer-reviewed journal publications.

He also has 15 patents and invention disclosures.

Huang's work has been recognized with awards and honors including the 2010 National Institutes of Health Director's New Innovator Award, a 2011 Penn State Engineering Alumni Society Outstanding Research Award, a 2011 JALA Top Ten Breakthroughs of the Year Award, a 2012 Society for Manufacturing Engineers Outstanding Young Manufacturing Engineer Award, a 2013 Penn State Faculty Scholar Medal, a 2013 American Asthma Foundation Scholar Award, and the 2014 Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Sensors Council Technical Achievement Award.

He received his bachelor's and master's degrees in energy and power engineering from Xi'an Jiaotong University, China, in 1996 and 1999, respectively, and his doctorate degree in mechanical and aerospace engineering from the University of California, Los Angeles in 2005.

Formed as the Chemical Society of London in 1841, the Royal Society of Chemistry promotes excellence in the chemical sciences by bringing together chemical scientists and helping them to share their knowledge and ideas. The society has more than 51,000 members worldwide.
