Hakan Köroğlu was born in Trabzon, Turkey, on May 27, 1971. He received the B.Sc., M.Sc., and Ph.D. degrees, all from the Electrical and Electronics Engineering Department of Bilkent University, Ankara, Turkey, in 1993, 1995 and 2001, respectively. During December 2001 – December 2002, he performed his military service as a project officer in the Technical and Project Management Department of the Turkish Land Forces Command. From January 2004 till February 2009, he worked as a postdoctoral research associate at Delft Center for Systems and Control, Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands. During December 2009 - January 2011, he worked as a researcher at the control group of the Electrical Engineering Department of Eindhoven University of Technology, The Netherlands, and part time at the Dutch company ASML, within a project on lithographic process control. He then joined the Electrical Engineering Department of King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals, Saudi Arabia in February 2011 as an assistant professor and worked there till September 2012. Afterwards he worked at Chalmers University of Technology, Department of Signals and Systems during April 2013 - April 2017 as a researcher and a teacher. As of June 2019, he is affiliated with University of Twente, Faculty of Engineering Technology as an assistant professor.

Dr. Koroglu's main research focus has been within the area of robust control theory, with emphasis on analysis and synthesis techniques based on linear matrix inequality optimization (more formally known as semi-definite programming). His recent focus is on using LMI methods for adaptive controller synthesis. He is also interested in various applications ranging from mechatronic systems to aerospace, automotive control, autonomous driving and intelligent transportation systems (like vehicle platoons).
