Hi, I'm Jyotika
WHERE I COME FROM
Currently based in Sunnyvale, California, I am originally from Bombay, India and immigrated to the United States in 1994 after completing my undergraduate degree in Electrical Engineering. I then attended graduate school at Iowa State University and have worked in the Semiconductor Industry for the the past 26 years since then. I started my IEEE journey as a college student and have had the honor to serve the Computer Society over the years, an enriching experience! Through work and volunteering activities, I've had the honor of working closely with communities in Asia and Europe in addition to the United States, and I have greatly appreciated the invaluable, diverse experiences. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family. My 2 older children are now pursuing their college degrees in Computer Science. I enjoy reading and running and am now an official marathoner :)
A THRIVING CAREER
I am a Senior IEEE Member and experienced leader and influencer in emerging technologies and international standardization initiatives. I was honored to receive the IEEE Computer Society Golden Core Award in 2022. Currently an elected member of the Computer Society Board of Governors and Executive Committee, I serve as the 2022 Secretary and Distinguished Visitor of the Computer Society. I also chair the IEEE P2851 Standard on Functional Safety interoperability.
I am employed as a senior technical leader in automotive functional safety at NVIDIA, driving capability development, safety architectures and methodologies, system safety engineering activities and pathfinding for safety critical markets such as autonomous driving and avionics. Prior to NVIDIA, I was Principal Engineer (Director) at Intel Corporation where I led functional safety platform architecture for Automotive and Avionics use cases and drove Corporate-wide methodologies for radiation effects modeling and product qualification across market segments. My career is colored with experiences as a people manager, a technology leader and a volunteer trying to make a difference in the community.
While actively driving and influencing international standardization activities, I am also an active member of the IEEE Computer Society Functional Safety Standards Committee, Design Automation Standards Committee and Diversity and Inclusion Committee. I also represent the Computer Society at the IEEE USA AI Policy Committee, IEEE SA Industry Connection Group on Mobility as a Service (MaaS) related standardization activities, the IEEE Women in Engineering (WIE) Committee and the IEEE Systems Council. Last year I served on the IEEE Computer Society Industry Engagement Committee and Audit Committees. Over the years I have been actively serving on IEEE technical conference committees and authored patents and publications in technical journals.
