About me

Prof. Lu received the B.S. degree in physics from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, in 1996, and the M.A. and Ph.D. in physics from Rice University, Houston, TX in 1999 and 2003, respectively. From 2003 to 2005, he was a postdoctoral research fellow at Harvard University, Cambridge, MA. In 2005, he joined the faculty of the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department at the University of Michigan as an assistant professor. He has published over 100 journal papers in the field of nanoelectronics with over 15,000 citations (h-factor 50) to date. He is a co-Editor-in-Chief for Nanoscale, a member of the IEEE, APS, MRS, an active member of two IEEE technical committees and several program committees. He is a recipient of the NSF CAREER Award. His research interest lies in the application and fundamental understanding of nanostructures and nanodevices, including high-density memory and logic devices based on two-terminal resistive switches (memristors), neuromorphic computing systems, and semiconductor nanowire based electronics. He currently advises 11 Ph.D. students and 3 postdoctoral researchers, and has graduated 12 Ph.Ds and advised 6 postdocs.
