Employee Spotlight – Lynn Dony
Meet Lynn Dony, Simulation Engineer on a Active Safety and Autonomous team, formed out of a Canadian Technical Centre Markham campus.
1) How prolonged have we been during GM and what is your stream role?
I’m a Simulation Engineer in Active Safety Autonomous Systems, and I’ve worked during GM for only over dual years now.
2) What brought we to GM?
My credentials is in biomedical engineering, and we never unequivocally deliberate a automotive attention as an option. It wasn’t until we was operative on my masters on pushing simulators when my crony who works during GM suggested requesting to some positions within a Active Safety Autonomous group. After articulate to some people on a organisation and removing an thought of what they were operative on, we knew we unequivocally wanted to be a partial of it!
3) What is a best partial about your job?
There’s a lot of “best parts” about my job! Getting to be partial of projects that will assistance save lives on a highway is unequivocally inspiring, though even a record itself is so cool. Although in simulation, a things I’m operative on aren’t indispensably going to be on a vehicle, we need to have a low bargain of all that’s going on in a system, so that we can copy and exam things that wouldn’t be means to be tested otherwise. The people we get to work with also unequivocally pull me to grow, either it’s training from someone who’s had decades of knowledge in a specific area, or someone uninformed out of an educational sourroundings with some new innovative ideas we can incorporate into a work.
4) How has GM helped we grow?
When we initial started, a Active Safety Autonomous organisation in Canada was a lot smaller than it is today. Getting to assistance devise for all a new work and organisation members, and build out a new lab space in Markham has unequivocally taught me a lot. In further to my work in simulation, we also lead a Community Involvement Committee for a Markham JumpStart bend (an worker apparatus organisation for those in their initial 5 years during GM). This has authorised me to flex my care skills. Working with colleagues in opposite locations and organic areas of a association has also helped me with collaboration, communication and networking.
5) What is a coolest thing that you’ve achieved given being during GM?
Seeing SuperCruise launch final year was unequivocally cool! we started during a tail-end of development, though meaningful that my organisation played a partial in a success creates us all feel proud.
6) What’s your favourite GM vehicle?
Definitely a Cruise AV Bolt. we recently got to see a chronicle but motorist controls, it was so awesome. Getting to work on a complement that will make unconstrained vehicles a existence is super cool.
7) If we could expostulate to one place where would it be?
California, in one of those embellished out vans we can nap and live in. Like a surfer’s dream but a surfing.
8) What do we do on your giveaway time?
I changed to Toronto a year ago, and we like to get out and try a city. When I’m home we like to weave and listen to podcasts.
9) What’s one thing many people don’t know about you?
I lived in England for a year when we was 13!
10) If we didn’t have to sleep, what would we do with a additional time?
I adore sleep, so we feel like even if we didn’t have to nap we still would. Sleep is great, I’d take nap over additional time any day (I do that now).
11) Are we some-more of a hunter or a gatherer?
Gatherer! we adore a good collection of things.
