Victor Henning is an empirical social scientist and a co-founder of Mendeley, a Web 2.0 tool for researchers. After completing his MBA in 2004, he became a lecturer and doctoral student at the School of Media at the Bauhaus-University of Weimar. His PhD research on the role of emotions in decision-making was funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research and the Foundation of the German Economy (SDW). In July 2005, for a paper studying the antecedents and consequences of file-sharing technology adoption for the film industry, he won the Best Conference Paper Award at the largest academic conference in the field of marketing, the AMA's Summer Conference in San Francisco.

Since 2007 he is also the co-founder and director of Mendeley, a combined cross-platform desktop software and website which helps researchers manage and share research papers. Information on research paper usage and tagging is anonymously aggregated on Mendeley Web to create an open, semantic database of research papers, research statistics, and (in the future) reading recommendations. Mendeley is funded by some of the key personnel who built Skype and Last.fm.

Victor Henning's main responsibility at Mendeley is the conceptual design of the entire application, as well as keeping close contact with interdisciplinary academic communities to better understand its requirements for software/web tools. As such, he has been invited to give talks at international academic conferences and institutions such as Princeton University, Cornell University, New York University, University of Bath, and Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory.
