Heiko Purnhagen received the M.S. degree (Dipl.-Ing.) in Electrical Engineering from the University of Hannover, Germany, in 1994, concluded by a final thesis project on automatic speech recognition carried out at the Norwegian Institute of Technology, Trondheim, Norway. From 1996 to 2002, he was with the Information Technology Laboratory at the University of Hannover, where he worked on very low bit rate audio coding using parametric signal representations, and where he received the PhD degree (Dr.-Ing.) in 2008.

From 1996 to 2011, he was an active member of the ISO MPEG standardization committee and acted as editor of several MPEG standards. In 2002, he joined Coding Technologies in Stockholm, Sweden, which in 2007 became a part of Dolby Laboratories, and where he is working on research, development, and standardization of perceptual low bit rate audio and speech coding systems and related signal processing algorithms. He contributed to the development of Parametric Stereo for MPEG-4 HE AAC, the MPEG-D USAC standard, Dolby Voice, and recently the Dolby AC-4 System.
