Long Lu My name is Long Lu (Chinese: ll). I'm an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at Stony Brook University. I direct the RiS3 Lab (Research in Software and Systems Security). I earned my Ph.D. in Computer Science from Georgia Tech.

My research aims at securing software and systems against critical threats. Recently I've been pursuing this goal in the context of smartphones and the Web. My work frequently intersects with other computer science fields outside of security, including operating systems, program analysis, and software engineering. I enjoy building practical systems to solve challenging security problems. 

To prospective students: I'm looking for students who share my academic interests and have a solid technical background in security and/or systems. If you are the one, I look forward to hearing from you!
