Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering GPA: 3.37 Iowa State University

Ames, Iowa Expected May 2019


Universal Oil Products Honeywell May 2018-August 2018 McCook, IL

Standardized run conditions for different feed and product types which reduced the probability of an error in the program assignment, which saves thousands of dollars

Assisted with the standardization of the program assignment interface in Hydat

Online Mass Balance Project- Analyzed data from the feed flow meter to determine its offset. The feed flow meter was concluded to be within offset allowed by the manufacture. Then assisted in the decision to keep the E&H Coriolis flow meter for online mass balance

Fractionation tool- Analyzed the stabilizer column bottom products to predict temperature profiles of the atmospheric and the vacuum columns which reduced the time to achieve the desired temperature profiles

E&H Coriolis Rezeroing study- Analyzed data which concluded that rezeroing the flow meters with the heat on had similar offsets to when heat was off
