From January 2015 to July 2018, he was with Argonne National Laboratory, first as a Postdoc Appointee and then as an Energy Systems Scientist. In July 2018, he joined the College of Engineering at Temple University.

Dr. Lu received Outstanding Reviewer Award for IEEE Transactions on Power Electronics in 2013, Outstanding Reviewer Award for IEEE Transactions on Smart Grid in 2015, and Outstanding Postdoctoral Performance Award at Argonne National Laboratory in 2016.

Dr. Lu is the Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics, the Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Industry Applications, and the Editor of IEEE Transactions on Smart Grid. He is a member of IEEE Power Electronics Society (PELS), Industrial Electronics Society (IES), Industry Applications Society (IAS), and Power and Energy Society (PES). He is also serving as the Secretary of Industrial Power Converters Committee (IPCC) in IEEE IAS.
