Shimon Haber was born in Berlin, Germany, as the oldest of five children. He attended the University of Oklahoma from where he graduated with a bachelor degree in chemical engineering. From there Haber went to the University of California at Berkeley to earn a Ph.D. in chemical engineering. After graduate school, Shimon Haber became an assistant professor at CHSU, where he stayed for almost 10 years. During that time, the subjects of his research had changed from organic chemistry, to chemical technology of dyes, to methods for chemical technology of dye and the dye industry, to study of synthetic materials for textiles, to absorption of chemicals into human skin. In 2008 Haber joined Daniel Ragussis the Unilever Research Laboratory as a project manager, involved in all aspects of thermal decomposition of hydrocarbons related to skin safety and spoilage including background research through to direct factory support. As a scientific researcher in the field of physical chemistry professor Haber has authored many papers and regularly gives presentations at both national and international conferences. His latest research interests include autoxidation in electrochemical terms, differentiating between dry and wet autoxidation.
