03/2014 to 11/2014 Process Engineer Dow Chemical Company | Carrollton, KY,

Plant Manager: Mr. James Lankford

  • Planned and supervised draining and starting up glass furnaces as part of routine rebuilds and in emergency situations; coordinating and collaborating with contractors and other hot-end personnel from other plants.
  • Gained control over the melting process resulting in an increase in production, creating $300,000 in additional revenue
  • Output was increased from 75% of target to 97% of target in only 3 weeks. Over a year, this small corrective action could have created over $3M in additional sales.
  • Wrote PCP and SCPs; and provided support to shift managers for employee training and compliance
  • Initiated, implemented, and managed Continuous Improvement Efforts, FMEA, and 3D-5Y root cause analysis Process and Quality
10/2011 to 05/2013 Hot-End Process Engineer Knauf Insulation | City, STATE,

Manager: Mr. Eric Long

  • Increased glass pull rates (production capacity or output) by 5%; 45 tons/day over the furnace's projected design life in tons
  • Demonstrated technical knowledge and problem solving on 2 continuous fiberglass insulation production lines
  • Maintained optimal operating conditions on an electric cold-top glass furnace and troubleshot issues dealing with both the furnace and the fiberization/forming processes
  • Collaborated with corporate furnace engineers on a throat over-coating project that extended the furnace's projected design life by 15 months melting 36,964 tons over the projected amount saving over $3.5M
  • Improved the melting and fiberization processes by increasing the recycled glass content in the batch, lowering energy costs and decreasing raw material costs for a total savings of $250,000/year
  • Implemented all batch and binder formula changes, worked and negotiated with vendors, trucking companies and Union Pacific railroad to maintain the quality, supply, cost, and delivery of all batch and binder raw materials
  • Represented and communicated with customers and other technical personnel on business visits, conferences and during daily interactions to obtain feedback about products and installation
07/2009 to 11/2010 Undergraduate/ Graduate Research Assistant New York State College Of Ceramics | City, STATE,
  • Microscopy and Microstructural Characterization Laboratory Supervisor: Dr. James Varner
  • Provided assistance and instruction for undergraduates in an optical microscopy laboratory course
  • Aided in teaching 30 undergraduates about microscopy and microstructural characterization through hands-on laboratory experiments
  • Assisted with various techniques employed to better understand materials' properties and fractography using optical microscopes
  • Improved leadership and teaching skills Supervisor: Dr. James E. Shelby
  • Extensive experience in developing and improving new glass compositions along with hands-on experience of batching and melting numerous silicate, borosilicate, borate, germanate, and phosphate glasses
  • Characterized and measured various properties of Sodium-Niobium-Germanate, Sodium-Tantalum-Germanate, Potassium-Niobium-Germanate, Lithium-Yttrium-Silicate, Lithium-Silicate, and mixed NiO/CoO Soda-Lime-Silicate and Lithium-aluminoborosilicate glass systems
  • Independently operated advanced laboratory equipment and software as needed; including furnaces, digital scanning calorimeter, dilatometer, UV-VIS spectrometer, IR spectrometer, thermal analyses and x-ray diffractometer7
  • Assisted graduate and Ph.D. students with laboratory experiments and measurements when necessary
  • Carried out electrical conductivity, magnetic susceptibility, Curie temperature, and density measurements
  • Wrote reports, plotted data to find trends, compared results with pre-existing data, and met with advisor to report on progress and to ensure support on projects and research
