Bio Juergen Hahn was born in Grevenbroich, Germany, in 1971. He received his diploma degree in engineering from RWTH Aachen, Germany, in 1997, and his MS and Ph.D. degrees in chemical engineering from the University of Texas, Austin, in 1998 and 2002, respectively. He was a post-doctoral researcher at the chair for process systems engineering at RWTH Aachen, Germany, before joining the department of chemical engineering at Texas A&M University, College Station, in 2003. He joined the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute as a professor in 2012 and is currently the heading the Department of Biomedical Engineering in addition to holding an appointment in the Department of Chemical & Biological Engineering. His research interests include systems biology and process modeling and analysis with over 70 articles and book chapters in print. Dr. Hahn is a recipient of a Fulbright scholarship (1995/96), received the Best Referee Award for 2004 from the Journal of Process Control, the CPC 7 Outstanding Contributed Paper Award in 2006, was named the 2010 CAST Outstanding Young Researcher, and has been elected as an AIMBE fellow in 2013. He is currently serving as an associate editor for the journals Automatica, Control Engineering Practice, and as editor for the Journal of Process Control.
