Dr Lu works on fundamental problems in the areas of signal processing, machine learning, and communications. Her current focus is on robust and adaptive Bayesian methods for uncertainty-aware decision-making using sequential and/or networked data, including but not limited to i) online Gaussian process based prediction, ii) Bayesian optimization and active learning, iii) Bayesian reinforcement learning, and iv) spatio-temporal inference over graphs, which find exciting applications in autonomous and networked systems.
