Kangjie Lu joined the Department of Computer Science & Engineering in 2017 as an assistant professor. He received his Ph.D. (2017) in computer science from the Georgia Institute of Technology. Prior to his time at the University, he served as a visiting scholar at MPI-SWS & CISPA Helmholtz Center for Information Security (Germany), as a research intern at NEC Labs America and at Samsung Research America, and as a research assistant at Singapore Management University from 2010-12. He received the National Science Foundation’s CAREER Award in 2021.
Lu’s research interests lie in the fields of computer security, software engineering, operating systems, artificial intelligence, and security ethics. His research aims to secure both traditional software systems and AI systems, with a focus on program understanding and reasoning, secure-by-design principles and defense, and sustainable security assurance. He often achieves research goals through dynamic/static/symbolic program analysis, compiler techniques, system building, machine learning, and natural language processing.
