Daisy Huang is an associate professor of energy at UAF, working on the forefront of renewable energy research in the challenging Arctic environment. Living in a dry cabin in a city with extreme heating requirements and one of the highest energy costs in the world has made Huang keenly aware of the need to use technology to increase energy efficiency and develop local renewable energy sources. This led her to earn her Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from UAF in 2013.

Huang completed her B.S. in mechanical engineering at University of California, Berkeley and M.S. in mechanical engineering at Santa Clara University. Prior to her Ph.D. studies, she spent seven years designing mechanical components for the semiconductor and power control industries in the Silicon Valley. She also has broad experience in materials selection and design-for-manufacture criteria.

Outside of work, Huang enjoys skiing, hiking, backpacking, gardening, cooking, eating, reading and hanging out with her retired sled dogs.
