Dr. Huang received his Ph.D. degree in National Taiwan University. His research interests were Hydro-geomorphical process simulations in catchment scale. After receiving Ph.D. degree, Dr. Huang worked as a postdoctoral at Biodiversity Research Center and Research Center for Environmental Changes in Academia Sinica. Recently, he focused on carbon cycle nitrogen cycle, and watershed management. He is active in the international academic communities such as EGU (European Geophysics Union), AGU (American Geophysics Union) and IAEH (International Association for Environmental Hydrology). Meanwhile he also serves as journal reviewer of Bulletin of the Chinese Institute of Civil and Hydraulic Engineering, Journal of Geographical Science and Paddy and Water Environment.

Research interests: hydrological modeling and simulation, land sliding and sediment export, nitrogen cycling within watersheds
