Biography

Wenzhen Huang obtained his Ph.D. in Industrial Engineering from The University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2004 and worked as postdoctoral research fellow at UW-Madison. He also worked as a professor of Mechanical Engineering at Shanghai Jiaotong University, China, for about 5 years.

Professor Huang's interests are in product and manufacturing process modeling, simulation, design analysis and optimization, and diagnosis for variation reduction and quality improvement. Specific topics in his recent and current research include streams of variation modeling and analysis (SOVA) in multi-stage manufacturing systems, compliant assembly process, GD&T modeling and simulation, statistical tolerance analysis and synthesis, probabilistic design and optimization, metrology and sensor system, and statistical signal processing for diagnosis and quality control. The application area covers automotive, fuel cell, MEMS,aerospace, shipbuilding, power industries, and general mechanical products and manufacturing systems design. His research has been and is supported by ATP/NIST, NSF, and UMASSD Chancellor's Fund.
