Dr Chun Huang is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Materials, Imperial College London, working on developing new materials for energy storage applications such as lithium-ion batteries.

She develops new materials to improve the performance of batteries for electric transportation and electrical energy storage generated from renewable sources such as solar and wind for reducing human impact on climate change. She is also committed to teaching science and technology in higher education and encouraging students from diversified backgrounds to study science and technology degrees including girls and ethnic minority students.

She completed her undergraduate degree in Materials Science and Engineering at Imperial College London, and PhD in Materials Science at the University of Oxford. Before moving to Imperial College London, she was a Lecturer in the Department of Engineering, King’s College London. She was awarded the European Research Council (ERC) Starting Grant, UK Research Innovation (UKRI) Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) Innovation Fellowship and the Energy Excellence Award by the Energy Institute on her work of developing electrode materials to improve the performance of next generation batteries for wider adoption of electric vehicles and renewable energy.
