Dr Jing Lu joined the University of Winchester in August 2016 as a Senior Lecturer in Data Analytics. She is a research-active academic in computer science and informatics with extensive experience of teaching in higher education previously as a Senior Lecturer/Associate Professor at Southampton 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 information systems and knowledge management through data mining and graph-based modelling to data analytics and knowledge discovery, including application to real-world problems using digital technologies.

Jings research output comprises some 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 business intelligence, data mining, modelling and management, and data warehousing as well as international conferences on data science, medical informatics, data mining and knowledge discovery.

Jing's experience from research and knowledge exchange has helped to inform her teaching through supervision of projects and dissertations. Her undergraduate project outcomes in health informatics have been selected among the excellent examples of students engaging with applied research projects.
