Strong gravitational lensing and stellar dynamics provide two complementary methods in the study of the mass distribution of dark matter in galaxies out to redshift of unity. They are particularly powerful in the determination of the total mass and the density profile of mass early-type galaxies on kpc to tens of kpc scales, and also reveal the presence of mass-substructure on sub-kpc scale. I will shortly discuss these topics in this review.
