Personal profile

Xia Huang received her bachelor degree in Physics from Beijing Normal University, master degree in Semiconductor Science from Chinese Academy of Sciences, and PhD degree in Molecular Biology and Biotechnology from the University of Sheffield working with Prof. Neil Hunter, FRS. She has worked for the world leading spectroscopy company HOIRBA and focused on spectral technology development. She then served as an Associate Researcher at SIBET, Chinese Academy of Sciences. She is now an Assistant Professor at Department of Biological Sciences, Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University. Xia Huang has worked on fabrication of artificial light-harvesting systems for energy transfer studies for a long time, such as nano-patterning protein complexes on different surfaces for solar energy harvesting and storage. She is also interested in 3D microfluidic cell culture for tumour invasion and drug screening study. She has applied for more than 10 Chinese patents and published more than 10 peer-reviewed papers, such as Nat Communications, Nature Plants and Lab on a Chip.黄霞本科毕业于北京师范大学物理系,在中国科学院半导体研究所获得理学硕士学位,后在英国谢菲尔德大学师从Neil. Hunter院士获得分子生物学与生物技术博士学位。黄霞曾就职于全球知名光谱仪公司HORIBA公司,负责多种光学光谱技术与仪器的开发和研制;以及牛津大学附属ONI公司,担任超分辨显微技术在生物成像领域的应用科学家。2019年回国就职于中国科学院苏州生物医学工程技术研究所,担任副研究员、硕士生导师。2021年加入西交利物浦大学生物科学系,任助理教授。黄霞长期从事光合作用仿生捕光系统的技术开发和能量传导效率研究,专注于在不同材料表面构建纳米结构的人工捕光系统,推动生物太阳能芯片的发展。此外,黄霞正积极开展肿瘤与非肿瘤细胞在微流控芯片上的3D共培养工作,以研究微环境对肿瘤生长、迁移、入侵和异质性耐药的影响。已申请专利十余项、发表论文十余篇(包括 Nat Communications, Nature Plants, Lab on a Chip)。
