Yashwanth Naidu Tikkisetty

Yashwanth Naidu Tikkisetty originally from India, has charted a unique path in the field of Embedded Systems. His academic journey began with a Bachelor's Degree in Electronics and Communication Engineering, but his deep-seated interest in low-level memory management and embedded technology soon steered him towards specialization. Yashwanth dedicated his Master's studies to exploring and advancing in Embedded Systems, honing his skills particularly in programming with Embedded C, C++ and working with microcontrollers like the 8051, HCS12, Arduino, Tiva C, Aruix board. His passion for the field was further enriched by practical experience gained as an Embedded Software Engineer at an MNC, where he worked on projects like white-box unit testing of Embedded C code using VectorCAST/C++ in the railway domain. Beyond his professional endeavors, Yashwanth is captivated by the mysteries of space science and physics, an interest that complements his technical expertise. With a desire to delve deeper into Embedded Systems, he moved to the USA to pursue his Masters Degree in Embedded Systems at Oakland University, a step that signifies his commitment to pushing the boundaries of his chosen field. Yashwanth is currently engaged in research focusing on the study of Lidar and Extended Reality and integration of GPU acceleration.
