TAMUQ-Tingwen-Huang portraitDr. Tingwen Huang ’02, professor of mathematics in the Science Program, has received the prestigious Distinguished Achievement Award for Research from the Texas A&M University Association of Former Students. 

These awards are among the most prestigious awards presented to faculty or staff members at Texas A&M University. The selection is rigorous and the recipients are chosen by a campus-wide committee composed of faculty, students, former students and staff. The research award “recognizes, encourages, and rewards those individuals whose research efforts have been particularly significant and outstanding, and are so recognized locally, nationally and internationally. The results of these research efforts should have added substantially to the basic body of knowledge, have had significant societal impact, and/or inspired the discipline to expand in new research directions.”

Huang joined the Texas A&M at Qatar faculty in 2003 after earning his Ph.D. from Texas A&M. His research focuses on the dynamics of nonlinear systems including neural networks, memristor (memory resistor), complex networks, multi-agent, intelligent control and applications to smart grid.

He is a prolific researcher and author, having published more than 400 papers in prestigious leading journals, including more than 260 in various Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Transactions journals, the flagship journals of IEEE, and more than 50 in Neural Networks, the archival journal of the world’s oldest neural network societies: the International Neural Network Society, the European Neural Network Society and the Japanese Neural Network Society. His research has received more than 26,000 citations.

Among his numerous honors are the 2015 QNRF Best Research Project award, 2021 Outstanding Achievement Award conferred by Asia Pacific Neural Networks Society, one of the three premier neural networks societies. He is an IEEE Fellow, a Highly Cited Researcher in Computer Science and Engineering both fields by Clarivate Analytics, an Academician of the International Academy for Systems and Cybernetic Sciences (IASCYS), and a Member of the European Academy of Sciences and Arts.

Texas A&M at Qatar dean Dr. César Octavio Malavé said, “Dr. Huang demonstrates our Aggie core values in everything he does. He is a leader in research and I am proud of his achievements.”
