Li Li I am LI Li, a PhD student research associate in Software Engineering at the Interdisciplinary Security and Trust Centre (SnT), University of Luxembourg (UL), under the supervision of Prof. Yves Le Traon and Dr. Jacques Klein. I am also an honorary research associate working with Prof. Mark Harman at CREST/SSE, University College London (UCL).
I received my master degree in Computer Science from Beihang University in 2013 and my bachelor degree in Computer Science from Southwest University in 2010.

My research interests are in the areas of Android Security, Static Analysis, Machine Learning, and Empirical Study.
