Andreas Hein loves space and complex systems. He is fortunate to combine both as a professor for Space Systems Engineering at SnT, University of Luxembourg where he works on disruptive future space systems. Before SnT, he worked as a system architect at IRT-SystemX, designing autonomous transportation systems with Transdev. He was formerly an assistant professor at the Industrial Engineering Lab at CentraleSupélec – Université Paris-Saclay in the area of systems engineering, collaborating with major French companies such as Renault, Thales, EDF, and Air Liquide. He obtained his Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in aerospace engineering from the Technical University of Munich and conducted his PhD research at the same university and at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He is also the Executive Director of the Initiative for Interstellar Studies, a UK-based not-for-profit company working towards the realization of interstellar travel. Andreas has published over 70 articles in peer-reviewed international journals and conferences on space systems, systems engineering, and sustainable development. He is the recipient of the Exemplary Systems Engineering Doctoral Dissertation Award and the Willy Messerschmitt Award.
