### Research Interests

Dr. Lu is well-known nationally and internationally for his research work on large information networks, sparse random graphs, probabilistic methods, extremal problems on hypergraphs and posets, spectral graph/hypergraph theory, Ramsey type problems, Discrete Geometry, and other problems in graph theory. He has published 1 book, 2 book chapters, 70 Journal papers, and 13 conference papers. He was invited to give lecture series internationally four times, twelve 45-minutes talks at national and international conferences, and twenty-seven colloquium/seminar talks at other universities, and forty-eight 25-minute talks at various conferences and workshops. Furthermore, he has been supported by 6 NSF grants and 2 ONR grants. According to Google Scholar, Dr. Lu has 9599 citations with h-index 29 and i10-index 58. He had solved a $100-prized Erdos problem.
