Research Associate (Current Employee), Stillwater, OK – January 18, 2014
Pros: the research facilites and instruments available
Cons: it was a poorly managed institution, without checks and balances that promoted a good working culture, a lot of office politics and fear driven government was the biggest drawback
I learned how to conduct productive graduate level research. The chemistry that I did was focused on industrial applications and remediation for industry. The philosophical focus of my work was on nanotechnology in novel method and reagent development towards industrial applications. The premise that guided me personally was a low production cost and – more... high profit margin drive. In this setting I learned a wide scope of chemical instrumentation and chemical computational software. I learned how to interact with different peoples of the world, at the same time working in a team with diverse populations. The most enjoyable part of my job was doing research that developed new technologies and also teaching students of different backgrounds about chemical technologies. – less

Pros: employees are very nice to work with.
Cons: lack of available help when needed.
OSUMC has really inproved and updated the facility since I began working there. New equipment and updates...it is really coming along. The majority of the people who work at this facility are wonderful, caring and friendly among each other. I never really felt a closeness within my own department but I did enjoy working with other departments. I worked – more... pretty much alone on my shift and had asked for assistance several times but was told everyone was busy and I'd pretty much just have to make do. All in all I really liked working at this facility. – less

Research Assistant (Former Employee), Department of Mechanical Enigneering – September 26, 2013
As a Research Assistant in my master’s degree, I carried out wear analysis of nanostructured 9Cr steel for hybrid roller contact bearings. The wear life of bearing was improved 10 times than the existing steel. In my tenure as a Lab Assistant for 2 years, I trained over 400 students in laboratory in mechanical testing, surface preparation for metallographic – more... analysis, and root cause failure analysis of automotive and aerospace parts. As a part of my job I also conducted lectures on fundamental topics of Materials Science including role of materials and their properties in mechanical product design that helped me improve my technical, interpersonal and mass communication skills. I have set up new lab equipment, and was part of a lab maintenance team. I developed a strong ability to analyze and interpret the test data as well as evaluate the reports on materials testing. – less
