Assistant Professor


Electrical Engineering & Computer Science


Alvine Boaye Belle is an assistant professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Lassonde School of Engineering. She holds a PhD in software engineering from the University of Quebec (Ecole de Technologie Supérieure). She has completed a 2-year industrial postdoctoral in software engineering at the University of Ottawa under the supervision of Professor Timothy Lethbridge. After completing her postdoctoral, she worked for the federal public service while completing a graduate diploma in public administration and governance at McGill University. Her previous research focused on software maintenance and evolution, optimization, system assurance, artificial intelligence and machine learning. Her current research focuses on the assurance of intelligent software systems throughout their lifecycle. She speaks both French and English. Dr. Boaye Belle is also a mother, and she is very passionate about poetry, winning several poetry contests.
