I am a creative, hard and efficient worker who learns quick and doesn't give up easily.
Improved the calibration process for 245.1, speeding up the analysis and making qc anolomies easier to deal with.
Developed a new filtering process for samples undergoing metals analysis resulting in a faster filtering process that was more in line with quality standards while reducing risk of failure.
Implemented new batching system for samples undergoing metals analysis resulting in a vastly reduced contamination.
Reorganized Sample Storage increasing Storage capacity of samples by 17-45% (depending on sample type).
Performed a variety of metals digestions in a clean room while communicating with analysts to ensure on time delivery of all data and calibration coordination to maximize efficiency while minimizing contamination. (Dec 2014-current)
Performed flashpoint analysis using a setaflash on samples (Dec 2014-current)
Prepped oil samples for IC using a bomb calorimeter while coordinating with the IC analyst (Dec 2014-current)
Part of the team that performed a variety of microbiological water quality tests ensuring that hold times are met while minimizing contamination and meeting quality requirements (Dec 2013-current)
Used an atomic absorption spectrometer to determine mercury content in water and soil samples while ensuring that recovery of quality control is good. (Oct 2015-current)
Used an atomic absorption spectrometer in a clean room to determine mercury content in water samples with a limit of detection of 0.5ppt while minimizing contamination. (Oct 2015-current)
Ensured that the hazardous waste streams kept flowing while maintaining safety standards. (Apr 2015-current)
Performed % solids analysis on soil samples (Dec 2013-June 2014, Nov 2015-current).
Ensured that thermometers were calibrated on-time and in accordance to DOD specifications. (June 2015-current)
Ensured that all samples were stored properly to avoid contamination and ensure that they could be easily found (Dec 2013-Jan 2014)
Weighed out soils for extraction ensuring that samples were batched for maximum efficiency (Dec 2013-May 2014)
Performed a variety of wet chem analysis to determine water quality ensuring that samples were run before expiration and quality standards were met (Apr 2013-Mar 2014)
Used a HPLC to analyze soil samples for the presences of ions to test a method of using naturally occuring bacteria in soil to protect soil from earthquake induced liquefaction while recording my process and results in a logbook.
Performed xylanase assay experiments to determine the viability of a procedure for immobilizing a xylanase enzyme onto a magnetic nano-particle while recording my process and results in a logbook
