- Performed statistical studies of impact strength testing for blown polyethylene films using probit analysis and logarithmic regression modeling in JMP and Minitab to further develop and characterize the advantages of the Super-Hexene product line.
- Interfaced with manufacturing to investigate premature degradation in medical-grade Tyvek resin. Implemented a sampling plan with limited analytical resources, and analyzed sample data with JMP to determine the relevant process variables that led to degradation. Solution presented to upper-management.
