Multivariate Analysis of Spectroscopic Data

November 22-24, 2017 | Utrecht, Netherlands

Course Overview

The Multivariate Analysis of Spectroscopic Data training is aimed at researchers and analysts who work with spectroscopic data, and are already familiar with fundamental multivariate methods such as PCA and PLS regression.

Who should participate in this program?

The courses have been designed for individuals:

  • Involved in R&D, product development, process optimization, quality control & monitoring
  • Working with spectroscopic instruments (NIR, FTIR, UV, UV/VIS, NMR, DAS, Raman, Mass Spectroscopy) chromatography instruments (LC, GC, HPLC), production data, R&D, quality control or production processes

No prior knowledge of The Unscrambler® is required to attend our courses.

Ir. Gerben Mooiweer Statistical Expert, Douwe Egberts/R&D

Gerben Mooiweer graduated from the Eindhoven University of Technology, Chemical Engineering and Chemistry department. He joined Douwe Egberts/R&D in 1977 as a technologist on coffee roasting, decaffeination, nut fryer temperature control, rice drying and various other projects focusing on mathematical modelling. In his current job he is a statistical expert for the Douwe Egberts R&D department. In this job he applies design of experiments, mathematical modelling and multivariate data analysis on a wide variety of data sources like sensory data, process data and metabolomics data using The Unscrambler® software. Beside his work at Douwe Egberts he is a guest lecturer at the TU Eindhoven teaching multivariate data analyses and MatLab courses.
