“The usage of security analysis tools should become an industrial convention in secure software development. However, we need to create usable analysis tools at first.”


Linghui Luo (Chinese: 罗灵慧) is a PhD student advised by Prof. Eric Bodden. She works as a research associate in the Secure Software Engineering Group at Paderborn University since July 2017. Her research interests include program analysis (mainly Taint Analysis for Java and Android applications) and empirical software engineering. She is mostly interested in designing and tuning program analysis tools based on the needs of software developers and empirical data from the real world. She believes Open Source is the future and contributes to the open source community. She is the creator of MagpieBridge and one of the main contributers of the FutureSoot project.

Linghui’s Notes

Life Outside of Work

Together with her husband Linghui keeps three beloved pets: a dog (Java), a cat (Alan) and a black cat (Hacker). She loves to spend her time with her pets and do sports (before COVID-19) such as bouldering, water skiing, snowboarding and swimming. She also enjoys music and plays the cello.
