    Erich Bozenhardt, PE

    Process Manager

    Erich is an industry SME in Bioprocess and has more than a decade of experience in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries. He specializes in leading process-intense conceptual designs and the engineering of biotech and aseptic processes with facilitation through detail design and construction. He has extensive process simulation and operations research knowledge which allows him to solve complex problems related to running a process. His many years of small-scale biochemical engineering methods provide a foundation to bridge the design gap between true R&D and full-scale production. This experience allows him to provide practical solutions to process scale-up and provide a solid foundation to process optimization. Most recently, Erich has been helping biopharmaceutical clients deal with higher titers in existing facilities and designing new cell therapy facilities.
