General Information on Holger

Who I am:

I am a Professor at the Computer Science Department of the University of British Columbia (UBC) in Vancouver, BC (Canada). Vancouver is a beautiful city and a great place to live (for a nice real-time view of English Bay, click here). I am also a member of the Institute for Computational Intelligence and Cognitive Systems (ICICS) and a Faculty Associate of the Peter-Wall Institute for Advanced Studies, where I was a Distinguished Scholar in Residence April 2010 - March 2011. At the computer science department, I am a founding member of the Bioinformatics, Theoretical and Empirical Algorithms (BETA) Laboratory and a member of the Laboratory for Computational Intelligence (LCI).

Before starting as a faculty member at UBC in 2000, I was a postdoctoral fellow at the UBC Computer Science Department. Prior to that, I studied Computing Science, Mathematics and Molecular Biology at the Darmstadt University of Technology in Darmstadt, Germany. After finishing my Master's degree (Hauptdiplom) in 1996, I became a member of the Intellectics group of Wolfgang Bibel, where I worked as an Academic Assistant and finished my Ph.D. (Dr.rer.nat) in Computer Science in 1998. I have also been member of the Automata Theory and Formal Languages Group of Hermann K.-G. Walter, where I established and lead the SALIERI Computer Music Project.

My academic interests are focussed on topics in Algorithmics, Computational Intelligence, Bioinformatics and Computer Music.
