Hongxuan Huang, Associate Professor


Name: Hongxuan Huang Phone: 010-62795308 E-mail: Fax: 010-62795308 Address: Room 513, Shun-De Building Homepage:


Dr. Hong-Xuan HUANG was born in a countryside in Henan Province, China. Usually, he thinks that he is still a countryman except for living in Beijing and not knowing how to plant corns.

Dr. Hong-Xuan received dual Bachelor degrees of Applied Mathematics and Automatic Control from Tsinghua University in 1990. Two years later, He received a Master degree of Computational Mathematics from the same university. In 1994, He obtained an opportunity to pursue his Philosophy degree of Management Engineering from School of Management, Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics (BUAA). He thinks that he was lucky for receiving a Ph. D. from BUAA before he was 30 years old.

Since August in 1992, he had been working in the department of Mathematical Sciences, Tsinghua University, even though he pursued his Ph. D. during the years from 1994 to 1997. He was also lucky for meeting many friends in the city of Gainesville, which is located in Florida state of USA, while he visited the department of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISE) and Center for Applied Optimization (CAO) in University of Florida from August, 2000 to August, 2001.

He moved to the department of Industrial Engineering (IE) from the department of mathematical sciences, Tsinghua University, in December 2004. During the past years, He is glad to have opportunities to serve for most of graduates in Graduate School of Tsinghua University from December, 2011, to July, 2015, and visit the department of Statistics in University of Wisconsin-Madison from February, 2016 to February, 2017.
