About Me

My name is Shih-Wei Li (黎士瑋). I am a PhD candidate in computer science at Columbia University. I work with Professor Jason Nieh in the Software Systems Lab.

I am from Taipei, Taiwan. I received my B.S. from National Chiao Tung University and M.S. from National Tsing Hua University, both in computer science.


My research interests span across areas in operating systems, virtualization, security, performance evaluation, and mobile computing. Currently, I focus on topics in ARM virtualization.



I like indie music and movies. Yo La Tengo and My Bloody Valentine are among my favorite artists. I like movies by Wes Anderson.

I watch a lot of baseball games. My favorite team is Chicago White Sox. I also enjoy travelling, reading, crate digging in record stores, cold brew coffee, and exploring New York City.
