Academic Career and Research Areas

Prof. Müller (b. 1965) explores the interface between mathematics and life sciences. He is particularly interested in the use and further development of dynamic systems and stochastic processes, as required by modern methods in biology and medicine.

Prof. Müller studied at the University of Karlsruhe. He did his doctorate and lecturer qualification (2001) at the University of Tübingen. Following a research stay in Utrecht (1997/98) and a period as interim professor in Cologne (2001/02), he became group leader at the Institute of Biomathematics and Biometry at Helmholtz Zentrum München (2002/3). In 2004, Prof. Müller accepted a position at TUM’s Department of Mathematics.
