Jin Huang's research interests center on social policies that support family and child well-being, with a particular focus on financial capability and asset building (FCAB) programs for disadvantaged populations. He has studied diverse populations with disadvantaged backgrounds, such as low-income children, children with disabilities, children of immigrants, and youth in transition to adulthood. Huang conducts research using large-scale policy experiments and national representative surveys. His research aims for universal FCAB policies for all. 

His findings have contributed to improvements in FCAB policies in the United States, Mainland China, Taiwan, and Singapore. His research has appeared in peer-reviewed journals including the JAMA Pediatrics, American Journal of Public Health, Social Science & Medicine, Social Service Review, and Social Science Research. 

Huang is one of the network co-leads to the Social Work Grand Challenge of Financial Capability and Asset Building for All. He serves as a member of the board of directors of the Influencing Social Policy (ISP) and on the editorial board of the Journal of Policy Practice and Research. Previously, he was a practitioner working with people with disabilities in the United States and China, as well as a policy intern at the U.S. Social Security Administration.
