Jan Voges studied electrical engineering at Leibniz University Hannover, majoring in communications engineering. He received his Dipl.-Ing. degree from Leibniz University Hannover in 2015. After graduation, he joined the Institute of Information Processing at Leibniz University Hannover as a research assistant, where he pioneered the compression and standardization of genomics data. In 2018, he worked as a visiting scientist at the Carl R. Woese Institute for Genomic Biology at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, where he contributed to a project to automate and accelerate the analysis of DNA sequencing data at Mayo Clinic. In 2022, he received his Dr.-Ing. degree from Leibniz University Hannover for his work on "Compression of DNA Sequencing Data". Since 2022, he is leader of the Genomic Data Science group at the Institute of Information Processing, Leibniz University Hannover. His research focuses on information theory, data compression, machine learning and bioinformatics. He has a special interest in international standardization, proposal writing, project management, IP generation and software engineering.
