An Li studied Electronic Engineering at the University of Southampton from 2008 to 2011 and graduated with a First class BEng degree. Then he did MPhil research at the Engineering Department of the University of Cambridge in 2011-2012. In a cooperation with Carl Zeiss Microscopy Ltd., the research aimed to enhance functionality of scanning electron microscopes (SEM) by using a parallel computation platform (GPGPU).
After his MPhil study, AN LI went back to the University of Southampton, and is currently a PhD student, under supervision of Prof Bashir Al-Hashimi, Prof Lajos Hanzo, and Dr Robert Maunder. The research is focused on the wireless communication upon parallel computation platforms, like GPUs on desktop computers or low power ARM’s GPUs on mobile devices.
