Dr. Rixiang Huang is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Environmental and Sustainable Engineering at the University at Albany, State University of New York. Before joining UAlbany, he was a research scientist at Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) from 2016 – 2018. Prior to that, he held postdoctoral fellow positions at Georgia Tech and Baylor University.
Dr. Huang's research interests include wastes to resources conversion via material, technology, and process innovations; and cycling of critical elements and contaminants in natural environment.
