Sven Kühn was born in Karl-Marx-Stadt (now Chemnitz, Germany) on New Year's Eve, 1979. He received his Dipl. Ing. (MSc) in Information and Communication Technologies from Chemnitz University of Technology, Germany in 2004 and his PhD from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technogy (ETH Zurich), Switzerland in 2009.
During his MSc studies, he worked as a research assistant in the fields of digital circuit design, electronic design automation, and automatic synthesis. He completed an internship at Nokia Mobile Phones R&D Bochum (Germany) in 2003. In November 2004, he joined the Foundation for Research on Information Technologies in Society (IT'IS), Switzerland, where he started to work on numerical and experimental methods and tools for the assessment of human exposure to electromagnetic fields. In spring 2005, he also joined the Integrated Systems Laboratory (IIS) at the ETH Zurich to start working towards his PhD in Electrical Engineering. Since the end of 2005, he has been working as a project leader for experimental electromagnetic analysis at IT'IS. In August 2009, Sven joined Schmid+Partner Engineering, where he is the product head for sensor design, pursuing R&D work towards a new generation of miniature electro-optical sensors. He is also leading the development of the DASY NEO product and EMC analysis tools. In September 2009, Sven received his PhD from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technogy (ETH Zurich). In 2011, he joint the IIS while maintaining a 20% position at SPEAG as head of R&D at SPEAG.
His main research interests include experimental and numerical dosimetry in bio-electromagnetics, classical electromagnetic compatibility, near-field sensor, radio-frequency circuit, antenna design, and optics, as well as bio-medical applications thereof. Sven has authored and co-authored numerous journal and conference papers as well as book chapters and serves as a scientific reviewer for PMB, RR, JBEMS, and various T-IEEE journals.
