Automatica publishes papers on original theoretical and experimental research and development in the control of systems, involving all facets of automatic control theory and its applications.

As associate editor, Hahn will be responsible for obtaining expert reviews for submitted papers and making publication recommendations.

At Texas A&M, Hahn conducts research that focuses on the development of new systems analysis techniques and their application in systems biology as well as for traditional chemical engineering processes. Applications of these techniques include sensitivity analysis of signal transduction pathways, image analysis techniques for fluorescence microscopy images, model reduction for controller design and experimental and sensor network design.

Hahn is a recipient of the prestigious Computing and Systems Technology Outstanding Young Researcher Award and holder of the Ray Nesbitt Development Professorship II in Chemical Engineering. He also serves on the editorial board of the journal Control Engineering Practice and the Journal of Process Control, the premier journal for process control research.

Hahn completed his undergraduate career at RWTH Aachen University in Germany, earned his Ph.D. at The University of Texas at Austin in 2002 and joined Texas A&M the following year.
