Robert Battista is a consulting engineer at Modality Solutions.
He works with clients to ensure proper design and use of cold chain systems, writes standard operating procedures (SOP) for cold chain related processes that meet regulatory requirements, drafts protocols and reports for the qualification of equipment and the validation of processes, reviews data packages for reports, and conducts in-person training for cold chain systems.
Robert received his Bachelor of Science degree in Chemical Engineering.
Robert has acquired expertise in the difficulties of properly operating cold chain
facilities in West Africa on two separate client projects.
Working on additional Modality Solutions projects, he has created new drug/sample storage site specifications, created storage site assessment materials, conducted the site assessments, and worked to mitigate risk in and enact current good distribution practice (cGDP) in active sites through the qualification of freezers and the development of SOPs, training materials and temperature monitoring and alarm system designs.
Robert’s expertise and research include reclamation of energy from pollutant bodies of water, operating characteristics of fuel cells, reaction kinetics of acetic anhydride, operating characteristics of a CO2 absorption column, and desalination of water through reverse osmosis. His research ranges from determining statistical significance of trace heavy metal concentrations in a watershed in northern Peru to using chemical characteristics of water to determine the sourcing to a watershed in Great Basin National Park in northeastern Nevada.
Prior to joining Modality Solutions, Robert completed a Gas Quality Internship at National Fuel Gas in West Seneca, New York. His responsibilities included characterising the accuracy and precision of a network of gas chromatographs and using trend analysis to determine the efficiency of the network using six sigma techniques.
