Prof. Henning Meyerhenke

Modeling and Analysis of Complex Systems


Henning Meyerhenke is Full Professor of Computer Science at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin since August 2018. Prior to that, he was Full Professor at University of Cologne and Assistant Professor at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, respectively. After obtaining his PhD degree from the University of Paderborn, Henning held postdoctoral positions at Georgia Institute of Technology (Atlanta, USA), NEC Laboratories Europe, and University of Paderborn.

Henning’s research interests concern scalable discrete algorithms for real-world problems in large and complex networked systems. Together with his co-authors, he received the Best Algorithms Paper Award at the 22nd IEEE International Parallel and Distributed Processing Symposium and the Best Paper Award of the 2015 International Symposium on Foundations and Applications of Big Data Analytics. His group contributes to FONDA by its extensive experience in parallel and distributed algorithms, in particular for applied combinatorial optimization (scheduling & load balancing, process mapping) and graph analysis.

Henning Meyerhenke is principal investigator in subprojects B1.
