Shih-Wei Li


Department of Computer Science and Information Engineering, National Taiwan University

I will join the Department of Computer Science and Information Engineering at National Taiwan University as Assistant Professor in Fall 2021. My research interests include operating systems, security, virtualization, performance evaluation and optimization, verification, and mobile computing. I have been working on core software systems, particularly the hypervisors. I have introduced a hypervisor design to secure virtual machines, built benchmarks to measure hypervisor performance, and worked on optimizing KVM’s performance for Arm hardware with VHE.

I defended my Ph.D. dissertation in Spring 2021. I was a Ph.D. candidate in Computer Science at Columbia University. I worked with Professor Jason Nieh in the Software Systems Lab. I received my Master’s from National Tsing Hua University and Bachelor’s from National Chiao Tung University (now NYCU), both in Computer Science.

I am currently looking for highly-motivated undergraduate and graduate students. Shoot me an email if you are interested in working with me.
