Lauren Bailey
Senior Manufacturing Process Engineer
GLOBALFOUNDRIES

“I am passionate about manufacturing due to the freedom to make changes that have a large impact. With the right risk mitigation actions, I am able to work in a team of empowered individuals to implement continuous improvement ideas. I get to observe the benefits of these changes made every day.”

Lauren is an outstanding engineer with a thoughtful approach to process control schemes that has been invaluable to GLOBALFOUNDRIES. Recently, she developed a moving range control for a key process signal that reduced melted aluminum scrap by over 90 percent and provided a more reliable product to customers.  

Her skills extend beyond engineering and into communication and leadership. Lauren led a complicated effort to improve the sharing of skills between engineering and equipment that required significant collaboration across all four shifts. With a strong dedication to the success of her team, Lauren routinely volunteers to provide coverage on nights and weekends in order to ensure that all systems function optimally. She also excels at leading existing and prospective clients through the company’s manufacturing processes and tools, and leads client audits and BIG2 interactions with Singapore in the Novellus aluminum module.

Lauren is also a role model for young women. Through multiple initiatives, she works to promote and highlight science, technology and engineering concepts to girls. She has taught Lego Mindstorms robot building and programming for the company’s GLOBALGirls camp and has participated in the Girl Scouts Engineering Day for middle schoolers. Additionally, Lauren has participated in the Vermont Tech Jam, reaching out to people interested in manufacturing careers. 

Lauren’s commitment to community service started when she volunteered weekly at the Ossining Food Pantry with her father. Since then, she’s volunteered with the Ronald McDonald House, Make-A-Wish and Swim Across America. Lauren also coordinates groups of GLOBALFOUNDRIES volunteers to work at ANEW Place in Burlington, which provides services to homeless community members. Together, they have prepared dinners, painted, performed building maintenance and more in order to support those in need.
