Dr Hsien-Yung Huang is a research associate at the Department of Bioengineering, Imperial College London. He received both his BSc. and MSc. degrees in Power Mechanical Engineering from National Tsing Hua University, Taiwan with first-class honour. After a year of compulsory military service, he joined the Human Robotics group at Imperial College to proceed with his PhD training in the fields of Neuromechanics and Robotics with Professor Etienne Burdet. He participated in a European Commission’s Seventh Framework Programme named SYMBITRON (FP7-ICT-2013-10, ID661626) where he developed a powerful robotic interface to conduct hip/knee joint biomechanics identification for lower-limb exoskeleton control.

After receiving his PhD degree in 2019, he joined the Neuromechanics and Rehabilitation Technology group lead by Professor Dario Farina at the Department of Bioengineering. He is responsible for developing mechatronics and instrumented interfaces for rehabilitation and electrophysiological researches. He is currently developing a compliant hand exoskeleton where finger motions are controlled by decoded intrinsic finger muscles activities.

Dr Huang’s main research interests are mechatronics, neuromechanics, assistive exoskeleton and robotics. He has several years of experience with lower-limb exoskeleton modelling and control.
