About Me

Beth Clarkson

Three decades as a statistician.

I am an ASQ-Certified Quality Engineer, with a PhD in Statistics.

I have worked as a professional statistician since 1983, helping manufacturing and service industries through the use of quality improvement techniques, surveys, and statistical analysis of data.

I specialize in computing material properties, engineering design basis values, quality improvement, statistical graphics, and basic statistical analysis for research purposes.

I am Chief Statistician at the National Institute for Aviation Research (NIAR); Senior Research Engineer and Chief Statistician for the National Center for Advanced Materials Performance (NCAMP); and Co-Chair of the Statistics Working Group and founding board member of the Composite Materials Handbook (CMH-17).

I consult in service and manufacturing industries – primarily in aerospace – in both white-collar and blue-collar environments.
