For his Diploma thesis, he received the Faculty Award of the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics in 1981. He received a Ph.D. degree (with summa cum laude) from the same university in 1984. In 1987, he had a 5-month research stay in Minsk, Belarus, and a 1-month stay at the Banach center in Warsaw, Poland. In 1989, he defended his Habilitation thesis, and in 1992, Werner received a grant from the Alexander-von-Humboldt Foundation for a research stay at the University of Osnabrück, Germany. In 1994, he had a teaching stay at the Uppsala University, Sweden. Currently, he serves as an Extraordinary Professor at the Faculty of Mathematics of the Otto-von-Guericke University of Magdeburg, Germany. Werner is mainly interested in scheduling problems (exact and heuristic algorithms, complexity, stability, and uncertainty), operations research, and graph theory. He was also a Guest Editor of the special issues in the following journals: Annals of Operations Research, Computers and Operations Research, and Automation and Remote Control. He has about 190 papers in international journals and book contributions, and he was a referee for more than 35 international journals. Werner is also one of the authors of the textbook Mathematics of Economics and Business (Routledge, 2006) and of the monograph Scheduling under Uncertainty: Theory and Algorithms. He managed several research projects supported by the German Research Foundation (DFG) and the European Community (INTAS). Since 2012, he is an Associate Editor of the International Journal of Production Research for the area of scheduling and discrete optimization.
