In his research, Henrik Leopold is mainly concerned with the interplay between information systems and business processes. Such business processes can range from manufacturing a car to delivering a medical service to a patient. He is particularly interested in how to leverage technology from the field of artificial intelligence (such as machine learning and natural language processing) to analyze and support the execution of business processes. Outcomes of his research range from techniques for the automated analysis of process model collections to novel process mining techniques. The results of his research have been published, among others, in the journals IEEE Transactions on Knowledge and Data Engineering, IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering, Decision Support Systems, and Information Systems.
