Huybrechts studied mathematics from 1985 at the Humboldt University of Berlin, where in 1989 he earned his Diplom with Diplom thesis supervisor Herbert Kurke. In 1990–1992 Huybrechts studied at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in Bonn, where he earned his Ph.D. (Promotion) in 1992 under Herbert Kurke with thesis Stabile Vektorbündel auf algebraischen Flächen. Tjurins Methode zum Studium der Geometrie der Modulräume. In the academic year 1994–1995 he was at the Institute for Advanced Study and in 1996 at IHES. In 1996 he was a research assistant at the University of Essen, where in 1998 he earned his Habilitierung. In 1997–1998 he was at the École normale supérieure. He was a professor in 1998–2002 at the University of Cologne and in 2002–2005 at the École polytechnique (Chargé de Cours) and, simultaneously, at the University of Paris VII. Since 2005 he has been a professor at the University of Bonn.
Huybrechts does research on K3 surfaces and their higher-dimensional analogues (compact hyperkähler manifolds) and moduli spaces of sheaves on varieties.
In 2010 he was an invited speaker at the International Congress of Mathematicians in Hyderabad and gave a talk Hyperkähler Manifolds and Sheaves.
