Biography

Professor Lu is in the Department of Informatics. She was a Team Leader of IT Department in an industrial company before she jointed university. She has successfully conducted two industrial projects in the area of XML and database systems, collaborating with Beijing University, China, during her working in the company.

Her research interests include XML technology, Object Oriented System Development, Agent technology, data management system, information access/retrieval/visulization/representation, security issues and Internet Computing. Some projects are directly linked to industrial interests, e.g. XML security with NPL, XML database with Hydro Logic Ltd, XML graphics with Cummins Turbo Technology (CTT).

Currently she is supervising PhD candidates in the above areas and has been invited and acted as an external examiner for PhD candidates in the areas of XML technology, database systems and distributing systems for three UK universities.

She is Guest Professor for two international universities: The Shaanxi University of Science and Technology, China, Guest Professor: School of Software (one of 35 key state software schools), Yunnan University, China.

She serves as Editor in Chief for the International Journal of Information Retrieval Research http://www.igi-pub.com/journals/details.asp?id=34686

Research & Scholarship

Professor Lu's extensive research covers XML technology, Information and knowledge engineering across disciplines as science and technology, education and environmental industry. Since she jointed the university from industry, she has developed a new research area, XML in science and technology. Specifically for this area, she has been an invited speaker for an industrial oriented event, XMLWorld, in 2002, USA, National Physical laboratory, NPL, London, School of Electronics Engineering and Computer Science, Beijing University, China, School of Software, Yunnan University and School of, Faculty of Information Engineering and Automation, Kunming University of Science and Technology, Faculty of Computing and Information Engineering, Shaanxi University of Science and Technology, China, 2004.
