He (Helen) Huang

He (Helen) Huang (S’03–M’06–SM’12) received the Ph.D. degree in biomedical engineering from Arizona State University, Tempe, AZ, USA, and postdoctoral training in neural engineering at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago/Northwestern University, Chicago, IL, USA. Currently, she is an Associate Professor in the UNC/NC State Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering and Director of the Rehabilitation Engineering Center at North Carolina State University, Raleigh, NC, USA, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Chapel Hill, NC, USA. Her research interest lies in neural-machine interfaces for artificial limbs and exoskeleton, design and control of therapeutic robots, modeling and analysis of neuromuscular control of movement in normal and neurologically disordered humans, epidural spinal cord stimulation, and virtual reality in neuromotor rehabilitation. Dr. Huang is amember of the Society for Neuroscience and Biomedical Engineering Society. She was a recipient of the Delsys Prize for Innovation in Electromyography, the Mary E. Switzer fellowship from the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR), and the NSF Career Award.
