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 and his PhD from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technogy (ETH Zurich), Switzerland in 2004 and 2009, respectively.
During his MSc studies he worked as a research assistant in the fields of digital circuit design, electronic design automation and automatic synthesis. He attended 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. Starting at 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 were he is heading the sensor design, pursuing R&D work towards a new product 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).
His main research interests include experimental and numerical dosimetry in bio-electromagnetics, classical electromagnetic compatibility, near-field sensor, radio-frequency circuit, and antenna design, optics as well as bio-medical applications thereof. Sven is author and co-author of 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.
