Since joining MSRA in 2004, he and his team has transferred many key techniques to Microsoft products such as Windows, Windows Server, Azure Media Service, Xbox XDK, Kinect Studio, Skype, Office Communications, and Expression Suite.

From 2001 to 2004, Yan Lu was a team lead of video coding group in the JDL Lab, Institute of Computing Technology, China, where he led the development of key techniques for MPEG-4, H.264, and China AVS standard. He was one of the key technical contributors and the editors of the first version AVS video standard. From 1999 to 2000, he worked on near CD quality audio compression in the City University of Hong Kong. From 1997 to 1999, he worked on facial expression recognition in the VI Lab, Harbin Institute of Technology, China.

Yan Lu has authored/coauthored 100+ journal and conference papers in multimedia. He holds 30+ granted US patents and 19 granted Chinese patents. He also has a couple of key technologies adopted by international standards such as MPEG-4, H.264/AVC and H.265/HEVC. Yan Lu received his PhD in computer science from Harbin Institute of Technology, China.
