Dr Jing Lu joined the University of Winchester in 2016 as a Senior Lecturer in Data Analytics. She is a research-active academic in data science and business analytics with extensive experience of teaching in higher education previously as an Associate Professor at Solent University and in China.
Jing was awarded a PhD from the Department of Computing and Information Systems at the University of Bedfordshire in 2006 and became a Fellow of the HE Academy in 2009. Her research activities have extended across computer applications and information systems through data mining and visualisation to business analytics and knowledge discovery, including modelling of real-world problems using digital technologies.
Jing’s research output comprises over 30 peer-reviewed publications in applied computing, where she has provided full submissions both for RAE 2008 and REF 2014. Her published research has featured in international journals covering management science, business intelligence and data mining as well as international conferences on data science, machine learning, medical informatics, data mining and knowledge discovery.
Jing's experience from research and knowledge exchange has helped to inform her teaching in various ways through supervision of projects and dissertations as well as curriculum development, e.g. for BSc Digital and Technology Solutions (Data Analytics) and BSc Data Science.
