ASQ Announces 2014 Freund Scholarship Winner

MILWAUKEE, WI — ASQ has awarded its Richard A. Freund International Scholarship to Salah Haridy, a research associate at Northeastern University in Boston, and doctoral student at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore.

Haridy, of Egypt, was awarded the $5,000 scholarship, which is named after a past ASQ president, and supports a quality professional’s graduate studies.

Haridy’s research interests include quality control and process improvement in manufacturing and service sectors, with a special interest in statistical process control. Haridy’s doctoral thesis is focused on developing new statistical process control charts that help practitioners make correct and timely decisions while facing critical problems — substantially reducing or avoiding costly damages and losses.

“Salah Haridy’s passion for quality is evident in his dedication to research designed to improve quality processes,” said Chuck Aubrey, Freund Scholarship chair and ASQ past chair. “Salah impressed us with his academic achievements, continued education and ability to deploy research findings in real-world applications.”

In addition to his research and studies, Haridy has been published repeatedly in top journals and presented papers at international conferences. Haridy also serves as a reviewer of technical journals and on a steering committee for the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers’ International Conference on Industrial Engineering and Engineering Management.

“This scholarship will inspire me to continue my work and significantly contribute to my research area with great motivation and dedication,” Haridy said. “The strong support and encouragement for graduate students and young researchers from the Richard A. Freund International Scholarship is very much appreciated.”
