Associate Professor - Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering - New York University Abu Dhabi (NYU-AD)
Muhammad Shafique (M’11 - SM’16) received the Ph.D. degree in computer science from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Germany, in 2011. Afterwards, he established and led a highly recognized research group at KIT for several years as well as conducted impactful R&D activities across the globe. In Oct.2016, he joined the Institute of Computer Engineering at the Faculty of Informatics, Technische Universität Wien (TU Wien), Vienna, Austria as a Full Professor of Computer Architecture and Robust, Energy-Efficient Technologies. Since Sep.2020, he is with the Division of Engineering, New York University Abu Dhabi (NYU-AD), United Arab Emirates, and is a Global Network faculty at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering (NYU-NY), USA. He is also an investigator in the Center of Cyber Security (CCS) and Center for Interacting Urban Networks (CITIES) at NYUAD.
His research interests are in brain-inspired computing, AI & machine learning hardware and system-level design, energy-efficient systems, robust computing, hardware security, emerging technologies, ML for EDA, FPGAs, MPSoCs, and embedded systems. His research has a special focus on cross-layer analysis, modeling, design, and optimization of computing and memory systems. The researched technologies and tools are deployed in application use cases from Internet-of-Things (IoT), Smart Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS), and ICT for Development (ICT4D) domains.
Dr. Shafique has given several Keynotes, Invited Talks, and Tutorials, as well as organized many special sessions at premier venues. He has served as the PC Chair, General Chair, Track Chair, and PC member for several prestigious IEEE and ACM conferences. Dr. Shafique holds one U.S. patent and has (co-)authored 6 Books, 10+ Book Chapters, 300+ papers in premier journals and conferences, and 50+ archive articles. He received the 2015 ACM/SIGDA Outstanding New Faculty Award, AI 2000 Chip Technology Most Influential Scholar Award in 2020, six gold medals, and several best paper awards and nominations at prestigious conferences like DAC, ICCAD, DATE, and CODES+ISSS.
