02/2013 to Current
Pilot Plant Laboratory Technician Covestro Ag Frankfort, IN,
  • Operate laboratory test equipment and analytical instrumentation; UV/Vis, TAN analyzer, CLORA chloride analyzer, densitometer, benchtop desalter (EDDA), and viscometer. Collect and analyze data from operations for accuracy and consistency.
  • Work closely with engineers and scientists to understand how total acid content (TAN measurement) and sulfidation affect corrosion rates of various metallurgies under elevated temperature and pressure. Independently operate, maintain, and troubleshoot flow-through autoclave corrosion unit. Update and maintain P&ID and operations binder. Plan experiments 12 months in advance to operate and perform maintenance most efficiently.
  • Participate in the design of new experimental equipment and experimental plans (modifications include piping, pumps, and vessel changes). Direct and take part in the maintenance and modifications of the experimental equipment. Lead Management of Change (MOC) meetings when making SOP or equipment modifications. Communicate with the team leader and the team all issues related to unit operation. Contribute ideas, observations, recommendations, and solutions to unit operations.
  • Participate in safety reviews and task hazard assessments for the equipment to be operated. Participate in site wide Emergency Response Team to assist in mitigating any hazardous situations. Completed FEMA ICS for Single Resources and Initial Action Incident training and HAZWOPER Hazardous Materials Operations 24 hour training.

  • Attended Six Sigma training courses.
07/2008 to 2010
Lab Technician University Of Illinois City, STATE,
  • Assisted in mouse work and genotyping of several mouse knockout strains housed by the lab.
  • Harvested and prepared protein samples from mouse lung. Quantified protein content with BCA protein assay. Prepared protein samples for gel electrophoresis and western blotting to verify protein expression.
  • Carried out in vitro studies with human micro-vascular lung endothelial cells. Examined barrier response in growing cell lines when treated with LiCl at different time courses via microscopy. Later, examined dose response of endothelial barrier with varying concentrations of LiCl. Harvested samples and extracted RNA for analysis by way of gel electrophoresis and western blotting.
