Long Lu My name is Long Lu (Chinese: ll). I'm an Assistant Professor in the Khoury College of Computer Sciences at Northeastern University. I direct the RiS3 Lab (Research in Software and Systems Security). I'm a recipient of the NSF Career Award. I earned my Ph.D. in Computer Science from Georgia Tech.

My research aims at securing low-level software and systems. Recently I've been pursuing this goal in the context of mobile platforms and Internet-of-Things. My work frequently extends to other sub-fields of computer science outside of security, including operating systems, program analysis, and software engineering. I enjoy building practical systems to solve challenging security problems. 

To prospective students/postdocs: I'm looking for PhD students and postdocs who share my academic interests and have a solid background in computer security and/or systems. Please check out the hiring ad!
