Klavs F. Jensen is Warren K. Lewis Professor in Chemical Engineering and Materials Science and Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. From 2007- July 2015 he was the Head of the Department of Chemical Engineering. He received his Ph.D. in chemical engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. His research interests revolve around reaction and separation techniques for on-demand multistep synthesis, as well as microsystems biological discovery and manipulation. Catalysis, chemical kinetics and transport phenomena are also topics of interest along with development of simulation approaches for reactive chemical and biological systems.

He chairs the Editorial Board for the new Royal Society of Chemistry Journal Reaction Chemistry and Engineering. He serves on advisory boards to universities, companies, professional societies, and governments. Professor Jensen is a member of the US National Academy of Engineering and the American Academy of Arts and Science.

He is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), the American Chemical Society, and the American Institute of Chemical Engineers, and the Royal Society of Chemistry.
