Tu began his career as a research scientist conducting computational fluid dynamics research on the steady and unsteady aerodynamics of complex aircraft configurations.In 1998, he was selected as the program manager for the agency-level High Performance Computing and Communications (HPCC) Program and led both IT Base and HPCC programs. In 2001, the two programs were combined into the Computing, Information and Communication Technology (CICT) Program and Tu was selected as the CICT Program Manager. In 2002, he was selected into the Senior Executive Service Candidate Development Program (SESCDP) and served in the Office of Biological and Physical Research at NASA Headquarters in 2003, and as the acting director for the Information Sciences and Technology Directorate at NASA Ames in 2004. After receiving his SES certification in 2005, he was selected as the director of Exploration Technology at Ames.
