Ang Li

Assistant Professor
University of Washington
Seattle, WA 98195


Ang Li (he/his) is an Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at UW. He earned his B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering from Tsinghua University, his M.A. in Electrical Engineering from Princeton University, and his Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Princeton University. He directs the PN Computer Engineering Lab (PNCEL), which innovates from computing systems to semiconductor circuits and explores the interplay between classic and emerging computing technologies.

In his doctoral research, Dr. Li has developed a silicon-proven, open-source, FPGA research and prototyping framework (PRGA) and studied tightly integrated, manycore-eFPGA, system-on-chip (SoC) architectures. He has been a leading member in two multi-university teams who successfully taped out, brought up, and evaluated two silicon prototypes, including a 2.2-billion-transistor, Linux-capable, fully cache-coherent, manycore-accelerator-eFPGA SoC, which is one of the biggest academic tape-outs to date.
