Lu Feng

Assistant Professor
University of Virginia

I am an Assistant Professor at the Department of Computer Science at the University of Virginia (UVa). I am also a member of the Link Lab - the center of research excellence in Cyber-Physical Systems at UVa. Previously, I was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Pennsylvania. I hold a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Oxford, a M.Phil. in Computer Speech, Text and Internet Technology from the University of Cambridge, and a B.Eng. in Information Engineering from the Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications.

My research focuses on assuring the safety and trustworthiness of cyber-physical systems (CPS). I develop modeling and analysis methods for CPS, drawing on formal methods, machine learning, control theory, and human factors. I also work across many different application domains, from autonomous robots, to smart cities, to medical systems.

I have been fortunate to receive a couple of awards for my work, including NSF CRII Award, CRCF Eminent Researcher Award, James S. McDonnell Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship, among others.

I am looking for PhD students with interests and expertise in cyber-physical systems, robotics, formal methods, and machine learning.
