Dr Huang is an algebraic geometer motivated by questions in homological mirror symmetry. His previous work on orbifold Hochschild cohomology uses tools from derived geometry and has applications to mirror symmetry and hyperkähler resolution conjecture.

His recent work focuses on Landau-Ginzburg model and categorical Gromov-Witten invariants. He is currently a postdoctoral research fellow in the Geometry and Mathematical Physics Group at the University of Birmingham, working with Dr Tyler Kelly under the UKRI Future Leaders Fellowship grant 'Open Mirror Geometry for Landau-Ginzburg Models'.
