My name is Palak Talwar and I work as a Sr. Safety Engineer at Lyft, Level 5 Autonomous Division, in Palo Alto, CA.
I did my MS in Control Systems from University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. After that, I worked for an automotive company for ~4 years working on control system software development and then on functional safety. At Lyft, I've continued my journey in the safety engineering space. The most challenging part of my job is to define safety processes from scratch with no clear mandate on do's and dont's. I also hold an approved patent on Control Redundancy.
