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). Previously, I was an assistant professor of computer science at Stony Brook University. 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 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!
