Dr Yuner Huang is a lecturer in Structural Engineering at the School of Engineering, The University of Edinburgh, since July 2015. She obtained BEng (Hons) in Civil Engineering from the University of Hong Kong (2009), and received her PhD in Structural Engineering from the same institute in 2013. She teaches Detailed Design of Structures 3, Thin-Walled Members and Stability 4/5/MSc, Steel Structures 4/MSc and Structrual Engineering Design Project 4/5. 

Yuner specializes in structural engineering. Her research interests focus on material properties, buckling, and fatigue of steel structural components, including sectional properties, columns, beams, beam-columns and connections. She has rich experiences using experimental and computational (finite element) methods in solving research problems. Yuner are also leading/involved in research projects on offshore renewable energy structures, life-cycle analysis and circular economy for built environment, and structural resilience in natural disaster under climate change.
