Shih-Wei Li


I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Information Engineering at National Taiwan University. I joined NTU in Fall 2021. I currently lead the Security and Software Systems Lab. My research interests include operating systems, security, virtualization, performance evaluation and optimization, verification, and mobile computing. I have been working on core software systems, particulary the hypervisors, the software that hosts virtual machines. You can find my recent and earlier work here.

I got my Ph.D. in Computer Science from 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 joining my research group and working with me.

In my nonexistent free time, I enjoy vinyl digging in record stores (other music forever!).
