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 was the senior engineer ("Oberingenieur") from Sept. 2010 to Sept. 2017, being responsible for internal and external representation of the institute (students, academic and industrial guests) as well as administrative and organizational tasks.

Holger attended several standardization meetings for the video coding standard "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.

His current research interests are video coding with special focus on low bitrate video coding for aerial surveillance applications.

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