PHD students

Chong Li

Chong’s research interest lies in simulation and verification of complex mixed-signal circuits. His current research focus is on developing novel automatic test pattern generation framework that addresses verification challenges in modern mixed-signal design. Chong is a recipient of the Intel Foundation/Semiconductor Research Corporation Education Alliance (SRCEA) Graduate Fellowship. Before joining UW, Chong received his master's degree in electrical and computer engineering from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and a bachelor's degree from Purdue University.

Aili Wang

Aili's research interest lies in the RF/MM-wave design and Wire-line Transceiver design. Her current research focuses on the Multilevel Transmitter design targeting on the high speed and low power. Aili received her master degree from Southeast University, Nanjing, China at May, 2013. She joined Silicon System Research Lab in September, 2013.
