The webinar will be conducted by AGR Senior Scientist, Dr. Brandon Aldinger.
Brandon joined American Glass Research in 2015, where his areas of responsibility include fracture diagnosis, stone identification, pharmaceutical services, and internal research.

He co-authored the "Color Atlas of Glass Container Defects" , a photographic guidebook for manufacturers, fillers, and trade suppliers that can help to quickly identify and resolve defect problems. This volume delivers a common lexicon for understanding defects that often go by several names in different industry sectors. With over 450 original photographs on 154 pages, the atlas is hardbound on high-quality photo paper and provides detailed descriptions of 65 defects that occur in container glass. 

Brandon obtained his B.S. in Chemistry at Penn State University and went on to earn his Ph.D.  in Physical Chemistry from Cornell University.
