Chemistry alum taking position with Cooper Tire

Tiffany Weaver (Chemistry ’11) has been hired as a Materials Engineer for the Materials Application Development department of Cooper Tire & Rubber Company of Findlay, Ohio. Her job will include technical support to domestic and international manufacturing facilities, development of new test methods, work on global raw material sourcing plans, and participation on teams preparing product lines for compliance with upcoming environmental regulations in Europe.

Tiffany states that “The opportunities to use and learn about the instrumentation beginning as a freshman was a reason for choosing Ashland University to begin with and played a major role in making me a good applicant for the position.” She also credits the one on one attention from faculty, her research opportunities working with Dr. Perry Corbin and Dr. Rebecca Corbin on MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry of polymers, which resulted in a research presentation at the American Chemical Society’s national meeting in Anaheim, and other opportunities such as the ability to travel abroad for helping make her a well-rounded candidate that stood out from the rest.
