S5E25 Erica Kahn | Ophthalmology Device Design & Being Laid Off

Welcome to a special episode of the “Being an Engineer” podcast, marking the beginning of our new “Open to Work” series. Part of the stated purpose of the BAE podcast is to “connect with the companies, technologies, people, resources, and opportunities featured on our show.” In alignment with that purpose, my goal for this open to work series is to provide a platform for engineers who are currently seeking new opportunities, sharing their experiences and insights in an open and candid manner to connect these talented professionals with our community of listeners who may be able to offer support or job leads

Our first guest in this series is Erica Kahn. She is here to share her journey, discuss the challenges of being unexpectedly out of work, and provide valuable insights that can benefit engineers who may find themselves in a similar situation.

We are honored to have her kick off this important series. Through her candid discussion, we hope to provide not only a connection for Erica but also a source of inspiration and practical advice for our listeners.

Main Topics:

  • Erica’s work developing hydrogel technologies for eyecare
  • Creativity in engineering
  • Coping with job loss
  • Leveraging her network
  • Career development after being laid off

About the guest: Erica Kahn is a highly accomplished biomedical engineer with a wealth of experience in the medical device industry. Erica previously worked for Ocular Therapeutix, where she made significant contributions to the development of innovative hydrogel technologies for ocular applications.
