Dr. Huang is a post-doctoral fellow in the University of Maryland Advanced Neuromotor Rehabilitation Training (UMANRT) program which is support by the NIDILRR Advanced Rehabilitation Research Training Project. Dr. Huang received her BSc degree in Physical Therapy in Sichuan University with extensive clinical placement experience; and a Ph.D. degree in Rehabilitation Science at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, where she conducted studies on the measurement(reflex and non-reflex component, ultrasound elastography) and intervention (vibration) for spastic muscle in stroke, postural control evaluation (e.g., brief BESTest) and intervention (e.g., dual-task training, footwear) for the elderly. Currently, Dr. Huang works in the Neuromechanics Lab with Dr. Larry Zhang in the Department of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Science at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. Currently, she is working on translational clinical trials on wearable robotic training for patients with subacute stroke, evaluation on the time course of stroke recovery, innovative cognitive evaluation methods for the elderly. Her research interest includes mechanics of motor recovery after stroke, muscle properties change in people with neurological conditions and elderly, and cognitive-motor control. With her clinical education background and research experience with engineers, clinicians, she also aims to translate the research output from the lab to clinical/daily practice.
