Dr. Kerry Johanson, PE is the chief operations officer at Material Flow Solutions, Inc in Gainesville, Florida. He began his career in powder flow and material handling as a summer lab technician with Jenike & Johanson in Billerica, Massachusetts during his high school and undergraduate years. After receiving his BS in 1985, he spent 14 years with JR Johanson, Inc. in San Luis Obispo California, finally serving as their Chief Technical Officer. He received his Ph. in chemical engineering from Brigham Young University in 1994 and in 2000, he branched out and moved to Florida, where he divides his time researching at the University of Florida Particle Engineering Research Center and serving as the Chief Operations Officer for Material Flow Solutions, Inc, the consulting firm he founded in 2001. He has authored more than 40 technical papers which have been published in numerous technical journals internationally. He has developed a course for teaching powder flow and technology to graduate students and mentored three recent doctoral graduates at the University of Florida. Dr. Johanson has presented numerous industry seminars on the topic of powder flow in industrial applications. Married for 40 years, he is the father of six children, and a grandfather to 16. He holds the rank of Eagle Scout with the Boy Scouts of America, and continues to serve as a Scout leader in his community. Dr. Johanson holds PE licenses in both Florida and Utah and is an active member of AAPS, AIChE, ASME, ASTM, and IChemE.
