Janos Abonyi received the M.Eng. and Ph.D .degrees in chemical engineering in 1997 and 2000 from the University of Veszprem, Hungary, respectively. In 2008, he earned his habilitation in the field of process engineering, and the D.S. degree from the Hungarian Academy of Sciences in 2011. Currently, he is a Full Professor at the Department of Process Engineering at the University of Pannonia. In the period of 1999-2000, he was employed at the Control Laboratory of the Delft University of Technology (The Netherlands) and worked on adaptive control of bioreactors. The project was successful, the developed ADI 1010 Bio-Controller is the smallest and most intelligent controller in the Applikon product range. He has coauthored more than 100 journal papers and chapters in books and has published two research monographs, Fuzzy model identification for control (Birkhauser Boston, 2003) and Fuzzy Clustering for data mining and system identification with B. Feil (Birkhauser, 2007), and one Hungarian textbook about data mining. His research interests include process engineering, quality engineering, data mining, the use of Fuzzy models, genetic algorithms and neural networks in nonlinear system identification, process monitoring and control, and using empirical and first-principle process models in predictive alarm management As a Cofounder of Simcont llc., he is active in carrying out hazard and operability studies.
