Jie Lu is currently the Deputy director of Curriculum and Teaching Committee.

Jie Lu received the B.S. degree in Information Engineering from Shanghai Jiao Tong University, China in 2007 and the Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Oklahoma, USA in 2011. From 2012-2015 she was a postdoctoral researcher with the Automatic Control Lab, ACCESS Linnaeus Centre at KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden and with the Department of Signals and Systems at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden. Since 2015 she has been a tenure-track assistant professor, PI in the School of Information Science and Technology at ShanghaiTech University. Her research focuses on developing efficient algorithms, computational models, and mathematical tools for large-scale optimization and control that enable intelligent decision making.
