University of Minnesota Twin Cities

Kangjie Lu is an assistant professor in the Computer Science & Engineering Department of the University of Minnesota–Twin Cities. I earned my Ph.D. in Computer Science from Georgia Tech in 2017. My research strives to help users automatically uncover and address security problems, and to harden widely used systems while preserving their reliability and efficiency. I have developed multiple systems and tools that prevent advanced attacks, eliminate vulnerabilities, and detect privacy leaks. My work has resulted in many updates in popular systems such as the Linux kernel, the Android OS, and Apple’s iOS.
