Fabian Müntefering studied technical informatics at Leibniz University Hannover, where he received his master's degree in September 2021. Between October 2018 and March 2019, he worked as a visiting researcher at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and contributed to a reference implementation of the MPEG-G (ISO / IEC 23092) standard for the compression of genomic data. Since November 2021, he has been working towards his PhD at the Institute of Information Processing in the field of medical information processing.
A list of his publications and citations is available at ORCID.
