Chemical Engineer:
National Gypsum Company
Lansdale, PA
Developed new and improved manufacturing processes and new products. Scaled-up and translated these from bench and pilot scale to full commercial production. Wrote detailed operating instructions and supporting project reports.

Provided technical assistance to Marketing and Manufacturing.

Monitored state & federal agency regulations and code groups' actions.

Supported ASTM, CPSC, and NSC programs in areas of corporate interest

Results: Developed several products introduced commercially, one having properties superior to any on the market and at lowest manufacturing cost.

Designed original lab equipment used to identify a series of cost-effective additives to reduce power consumption in plant extrusion process.

Helped develop several test and installation methods and standards with trade and code groups.

Graduate Student, Teaching Assistant, Research Assistant, Project Leader
Chemical Engineering Department
Lehigh University
Bethlehem, PA
Masters degree research in polymer science.

Supervised the instrument lab and taught analog computation. Conducted several contract research projects.

Results: Designed a novel fluidic-electronic hybrid device to measure liquid composition and directed an undergraduate design team in adapting this lab concept to practical on-line control of a distillation column composition. Modified this concept to develop a fluidic detector element for dedicated plant process-control gas chromatography.
