Biography of Dr. Linghui Luo


I am an applied scientist at Amazon Web Services, working for Amazon Q and CodeGuru. These blogs (here and here) should give you a glimpse of my work at AWS. My research spans various areas of software engineering and security, with a focus on advancing the effectiveness, scalability and integration of program analysis techniques. Particularly, I am interested in following research directions:

My contributions to the field have been recognized with prestigious awards, notably the Ernst Denert Software Engineering Award 2021 – an award for an outstanding research contribution in the field of methods, tools, and procedures for software development by the Software Engineering Department of the German Informatics Society (GI) in cooperation with the Austrian Computer Society (OCG) and the Swiss Informatics Society (SI).

Apart from my research work, I also actively serve as a program committee member at top conferences such as ESEC/FSE, ICSE, and ISSTA in the field.

Before joining Amazon, I was a research associate in the Secure Software Engineering Group at Paderborn University in Germany. I received my PhD from Paderborn University in 2021, with distinction, under the advisement of Prof. Eric Bodden. I also hold both a master’s and bachelor’s degree from Paderborn University.

Life Outside of Work

Together with my husband, I keep three beloved pets: a dog, a cat and a black cat. I love to spend my time with my pets and do sports such as hiking and bouldering. I also enjoy music and play the cello.
