Shihong Huang is a Professor in the Department of Computer Science & Engineering at Florida Atlantic University (FAU). She joined FAU in 2004 after obtaining her Ph.D. from the Computer Science and Engineering Department (CSE) at the University of California, Riverside (UCR).

Her research is in software engineering, which is concerned with the disciplined application of engineering principles to the design, development, and deployment of software systems. It is a broad area of inquiry that includes issues related to people, process, and technology.

Her specific research interests include reverse engineering for program understanding, program re-documentation, information visualization, technology assessment, and Web Systems evolution.
In the past couple of years, she has broadened her research interests to health informatics (particularly on capturing and managing nursing knowledge and practices), and computer applications in clinical and therapeutic fields (particularly on computer-based interactive system for children with Asperger’s syndrome). Her recent research focuses on Brain Computer Interaction (BCI) for self-adaptive systems. This research has been reflected in her publications, sponsored research projects, and students’ supervision.
