Yung-Hsiang Lu


Yung-Hsiang Lu is an associate professor in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Purdue University.  He received his Ph.D. degree from the Department of Electrical Engineering at Stanford University in 2002 and BSEE from National Taiwan University. His research focuses on system-level power management for mobile systems, wireless sensor networks, and autonomous robots.  He investigates how to save mobile systems' energy by sending heavy computation to resourceful servers.  His team develops mathematica models to optimize energy savings for multiple interacting hardware components.
In 2011, he was a visiting associate professor in the Department of Computer Science at the National University of Singapore.  In 2008, he was one of the three recipients of Class of 1922 Helping Student Learn Award at Purdue University.  In 2004, he obtained a career award from the National Science Foundation for studying energy conservation by operating systems.  He is a senior member of the IEEE and the ACM. He is an associate editor of ACM Transactions on Embedded Computing Systems and ACM Transactions on Design Automation of Electronic Systems.  He was the chair of the Green Multimedia Interest Group in the IEEE Multimedia Communication Technical Committee and the vice-chair of the Low Power Technical Committee in ACM SIGDA. He has served in the program committees of dozens of conferences, symposia, and workshops, such as the International Symposium on Low Power Electronics and Design, the International Green Computing Conference, and the ACM Symposium on Applied Computing.
