Dr. Y. Huang (Yilin)
My research interests include Modeling and Simulation (M&S) methodology and M&S-based design for large-scale socio-technical systems, in particular the subjects related to data-driven M&S and data analytics, distributed simulation, and design for engagement and sustainability. The application domain of my research ranges from transportation and logistics, smart grid, sustainable consumption, to humanitarian innovations. I have a passion for interdisciplinary research. I think that disciplinary research and interdisciplinary research are not orthogonal but complementary.

In the context of socio-technical systems, she is interested in developing systems that are aware of and adapt to human behavior. One key aspect in the development if such systems is the interaction, either between humans, or between humans and the systems they are employing. She focuses on understanding and recognizing human behavior, and devising models that can automatically asses behaviors of interest (e.g. critical situations) using sensors. In this setting, assessing emotions plays an important role, as emotions can influence decision making, trust, engagement, and how relationships evolve.
