Andreas Bommarius

Andreas (Andy) S. Bommarius is a professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, GA. He received his diploma in Chemistry in 1984 at the Technical University of Munich, Germany and his Chemical Engineering B.S. and Ph.D. degrees at MIT, Cambridge, MA (1982 and 1989, respectively).

From 1990-2000, he led the Laboratory of Enzyme Catalysis at Degussa (now Evonik) in Wolfgang, Germany, where his work ranged from immobilizing homogenous catalysts in membrane reactors to large-scale cofactor-regenerated redox reactions to pharma intermediates.

At Georgia Tech since 2000, his research interests cover Green Chemistry, continuous manufacturing, and biomolecular engineering, specifically biocatalyst development and protein/amyloid stability studies. His lab applies data-driven protein engineering to improve protein properties. Foci in biocatalysis are redox biocatalysts and beta-lactam amidases, multiphase reactors, and process stability studies. 

Andy Bommarius serves on the PD2M Executive Committee since 2019 and has been the PD2M Programming Chair for 2021 and 2022.
