Dr. John MacGregor has dedicated the last 40 years to helping manufacturers improve and optimize their processes using multivariate data analysis. During his tenure at McMaster University, John authored over 200 peer-reviewed journal publications in the areas of mathematical modeling of processes, optimization and control, rapid product development and image analysis.
John has received many awards for his pioneering work in developing and applying multivariate analysis to solve complex manufacturing problems, including the Shewhart Medal and W.G. Hunter Award from the American Society for Quality, the Herman Wold Medal from the Swedish Chemical Society and the R.S. Jane Award and Century of Achievement Award from the Canadian Society for Chemical Engineering. In 2004, John founded ProSensus to help manufacturers learn more from their big data to increase yield, reduce operating costs and improve product quality.
