I am looking for motivated students to work with. If you are interested, please drop me an email with your CV.


Welcome to Hui Lu's homepage. I joined Binghamton Unversity in Fall 2017. I received my Ph.D. degree from Purdue University, where I researched in FRIENDS Lab under the direction of Professor Dongyan Xu. Before that, I had worked as a performance engineer at Intel Asia-Pacific R&D Center and received my bachelor and master's degrees from Shanghai Jiao Tong University.

Research Interests

Computer Systems with focuses on systems virtualization, networking, file and storage systems, and systems security in the context of cloud computing and serverless computing. (Our ongoing projects.)
