Shiwei Weng 翁士伟

I am a second year Ph.D. student in the Department of Computer Science at Johns Hopkins University. My advisor is Dr. Scott Smith and I am a member of The Programming Languages Laboratory. I got my joint bachelor degree from Fudan University and University College Dublin in 2013 and master degree from JHU in 2018. My one-page CV is here (updated Nov 2019).

My research interests span several aspects in programming languages. I believe programming languages can provide solid solutions to problems in other areas in computer science. I am fascinated in theoretical problems which also have real-world impact.
