Hans Leo Bodlaender (born April 21, 1960 in Bennekom, the Netherlands)[1] is a Dutch computer scientist, a professor of computer science at Utrecht University. Bodlaender is known for his work on graph algorithms and in particular for algorithms relating to tree decomposition of graphs.[2][3]

Bodlaender was educated at Utrecht University, earning a doctorate in 1986 under the supervision of Jan van Leeuwen.[1][4] After postdoctoral research at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, he returned to Utrecht as a faculty member, where he has remained.[1]

Bodlaender has also written extensively about chess variants and founded the website The Chess Variant Pages in 1995.
