About Me

Lu Lu obtained his B.Eng degree in Mechatronic Engineering from Zhejiang University in China in Jun 2008. He then joined the School of Mechanical Engineering at Purdue University, where he received his Ph.D. degree and M.S. degree in Aug 2013 and Dec 2010, respectively. From Sep 2013 to Aug 2015, he worked as a postdoctoral research associate at the Center for Automation Technologies and Systems (CATS) at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. He joined the department of Mechanical & Industrial Engineering (MIE) at NJIT as an assistant professor in Aug 2015. Lu Lu´s research interests include control, robotics, manufacturing, sensor fusion and human-machine interaction.
