Prof Huang is a Professor of Mechanical Engineering at UQ. He joined UQ in 2005 as a Senior Lecturer and was promoted to Associate Professor in 2008 and Professor in 2011. Prof Huang received his PhD from The University of Western Australia in 1996. He has won a number of prestigious research accolades, including ARC Future Fellowship (2011-2015), ARC Australia Research Fellowship (2005-2010), JSPS Invitation Fellowship (2009), Queensland International Fellowship (2012) and Singapore National Technology Award (1999). He is the Associate Editor of International Journal of Mechanical Science and has editorial roles in several international journals, such as International Journal of Machine Tool and Manufacture. He was elected as a Fellow of International Society of Nanomanufacturing in 2012. He published over 290 refereed journal papers, 2 books and 4 book chapters.
Prof Huang has established a leading group working on nanomechanics and advanced manufacturing and founded a world-class laboratory at UQ that is dedicated to a fundamental understanding of material removal mechanisms and mechanical characterisation of nanomaterials and nanostructures. Professor Han Huang’s research interests are nanomanufacturing, machining technologies, mechanical characterization of nanostructured materials and nanostructures and nanoparticle-based lubrication.
Dr Xing Li is Research Team Leader of the Excavating and Drilling team in CSIRO’s Mining & Processing Technologies Research Group. The role of this team is to develop excavating and drilling technologies that will help mining industry deal with the challenge of mechanical hard rock excavation. Xing received his PhD in Mechanical and Material Engineering from the Curtin University in 1994, and joined CSIRO in the same year. Xing’s research experience with the CSIRO spans over 20 years. He has played a key role in development of the SMART*CUT technology. Xing's research interests lie in the area of mechanical excavation, cutting tool design, tool wear mechanisms, cutting drum design, superhard materials for cutting tool application, characterization of advanced diamond composite, assessment of drill bit performance and development of hard rock cutting equipment and method.
