Dr. Ching-Hua Huang is the Turnipseed Family Chair and Professor in the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology. Dr. Huang received her Ph.D. and M.S. degrees in Environmental Engineering from Johns Hopkins University, and B.S. degree in Chemistry from National Taiwan University. She was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of California-Berkeley prior to joining Georgia Tech faculty.

Dr. Huang’s research and teaching interests are in the areas of environmental chemistry, emerging contaminants, innovative water/wastewater treatment technologies for sustainable water supply, resource recovery of critical metals and¬†waste remediation. Dr. Huang has directed many research projects funded by federal and state agencies and industrial sponsors on issues of water treatment, emerging contaminants and critical metal recovery. She has extensive research experience on emerging contaminants, such as per- and polyfluorinated compounds,¬†pharmaceuticals, endocrine disruptors and nitrogenous disinfection by-products, and critical metals in natural and engineered water systems, as well as on the development of innovative treatment technologies for resource recovery and pollution mitigation. Dr. Huang has published more than 200 peer-reviewed journal papers, book chapters and conference proceeding papers on the above topics and is a frequent invited speaker at many international conferences and universities. Dr. Huang is currently the Associate Editor of ACS ES&T Water, and the Editorial Advisory Board member of Environmental Science & Technology.¬†The research by Dr. Huang and her students has received multiple honors from the American Chemical Society and the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry.
