Dr. Yiling Lou is currently a Pre-Tenure Associate Professor in the School of Computer Science, Fudan University, China. Before joining Fudan University, she was a Postdoctoral Fellow at Purdue University, working with Prof. Lin Tan. She received her Ph.D degree and B.S degree in Computer Science from Peking University, where she was very fortunate to work under the supervision of Prof. Lu Zhang and Prof. Dan Hao . Her research interests mainly focus on Software Engineering, and its synergy with Artificial Intelligence and Programming Language.

Our group is always recruiting undergraduate/master/Phd students interested in SE and AI. Please send me an email with your CV if you are interested in working with us.
