Holger Meuel studied electrical engineering at the Technische Universität (TU) Braunschweig with a focus on signal processing and communication techniques (especially DVB-T/T2). He wrote his diploma thesis with the title Kanalmessungen mit DVB-T und Matlab ("Channel Analysis with DVB-T and Matlab") at the Institut für Nachrichtentechnik (IfN), Abteilung Elektronische Medien: Systemtheorie und Technik ("Institute for Communications Technology, Department of Electronic Media: System Theory and Technology", Prof. Dr.-Ing. Ulrich Reimers) at the TU Braunschweig and received his Dipl.-Ing. degree in April 2010.

After graduation he joined the Institut für Informationsverarbeitung (TNT) of Leibniz Universität Hannover where he became the senior engineer ("Oberingenieur") end of 2010. He is responsible for internal and external representation of the institute (students, academic and industrial guests) as well as administrative and organizational tasks.

His research interests are video coding with special focus on low bitrate video coding for (aerial) surveillance applications. Holger attended several standardization meetings for the next generation video codec "High Efficiency Video Coding" (HEVC) of the MPEG and VCEG "Joint Collaborative Team on Video Coding" (JCT-VC). In that context he also dealt with radial camera lens distortion compensation, perspective aberration correction, scalable video coding and screen content coding.

Currently he is working towards his Dr.-Ing. (Ph.D.) degree.
