Dear Mr. Torrey, thanks for the reply. Can working at professor's lab be counted as volunteer it is related to my area of study? Thanks!

It could be, but you need to follow up with your DSO and make sure that they are updating SEVIS system with your work information. Another factor to consider is whether the work with the professor is a position that would be hired or a student type position.
