Prior to joining the University of Southampton as a Professor/Chair in Statistics in late 2013, Prof Lu had worked at several international academic institutions, including the University of Adelaide (2009-2013) and Curtin University (2006-2009) in Australia, the London School of Economics (2003-2006) in the UK, the Academy of Mathematics and Systems Science (1997-2003) in Beijing, China, and the Universite Catholique de Louvain (1996-1997) in Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium, after he received his PhD degree from the Chinese Academy of Sciences in 1996.
He was a recipient of the Australian Research Council Future Fellowship in its 2010 round, and is an elected member of the International Statistical Institute.
