Research Interests

Huang Soft Condensed Matter Theory Research Group website

  • Statistical mechanics
  • Soft condensed matter theory
  • Computer simulation of liquids and complex fluids
  • Organic photovoltaics
  • Microfluidics and nanofluidics
  • Water at hydrophobic surfaces 
The focus of my research is theory and computation related to soft condensed matter on the molecular and nano scales. I am especially interested in devising new ways to control the structure and dynamics of fluids in porous materials and the self-assembly of nanostructured materials for energy conversion and storage applications such as organic photovoltaics, electrokinetic power generation, and supercapacitors.
