Dr. Ashiq Sakib joined Florida Poly as an assistant professor in the Department of
Electrical and Computer Engineering in August 2019. His research focuses on advanced
digital systems design, which spans over asynchronous logic design and optimization,
low-power designs, resilience, and formal verification. His research projects have
received federal and non-federal funding from agencies like National Science Foundation
(NSF) and Southeastern Center for Electrical Engineering Education (SCEEE).
Sakib has taught several core and concentration courses ranging from freshmen to graduate
level, such as Foundational Lessons in Applications of MathEmatics (FLAME), Digital
Logic Design, Digital Electronics, Computer Architecture and Organization, Embedded
OS, and Embedded Control at Florida Poly since fall 2019.
Before joining Florida Poly, Sakib worked as a research assistant and teaching assistant
in the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at North Dakota State University
from 2014-2019. He also served as a guest lecturer for multiple undergraduate- and
graduate-level courses at NDSU.
Sakib is an associate editor of the Journal of Circuits, Systems, and Computers (JSC).
He has also served as a reviewer for multiple reputed journals (IEEE, MDPI, Elsevier,
JSC, etc.), and for reputed technical IEEE/ACM conferences, such as ACM/IEEE DAC,
IEEE ISVLSI, IEEE MWSCAS, IEEE ISCAS, Asia Pacific Conference on Circuits and Systems
