Jan Voges studied electrical engineering at Leibniz Universität Hannover with specialization on communications engineering and received his Dipl.-Ing. degree in 2015. In his diploma thesis "Genome Compression" he developed novel approaches for the compression of genomic information data generated by high-throughput sequencing machines. After graduating he joined Institut für Informationsverarbeitung at Leibniz Universität Hannover where he currently works as a research assistant towards his PhD.

He is an active contributor to ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 29/WG 11, known as Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG), where he works with the Ad-Hoc Group (AHG) on Genomic Information Representation. In the framework of the AHG activities, he participates in coordinating the evaluation of submitted technology.

Furthermore, he was appointed the DIN (German national organization for standardization) project leader for the development of Part 2 (ISO/IEC NP 23092-2) and Part 5 (ISO/IEC NP 23092-5) of the upcoming standard on Genomic Information Representation which is also known as MPEG-G.

His research interests include: Data Compression, Bioinformatics, Information Theory, Signal Processing.
