I am Markus Müller, a theoretical quantum physicist. Since October 2019, I am as a Professor leading the Theoretical Quantum Technology Group at the Institute for Quantum Information at RWTH Aachen University and the Peter Grünberg Institute for Theoretical Nanoelectronics at the Forschungszentrum Jülich in Germany. Furthermore, I am holding a part-time Professorship position at the Department of Physics of Swansea University in the UK.
I grew up in Germany, where I completed my undergraduate studies in physics at the University of Konstanz in 2006. From 2007 to 2011 I realised my PhD studies on Many-Body Quantum Simulation with Rydberg Atoms and Ions in the quantum optics theory group of Prof. Peter Zoller at the University of Innsbruck and the Institute for Quantum Optics and Quantum Information (IQOQI) in Innsbruck, Austria. After a postdoctoral researcher position at the Theoretical Physics Department of the Complutense University Madrid in Spain, from 2015 until 2019 I held faculty positions as Senior Lecturer, Associate Professor and Professor at the Department of Physics at Swansea University in Wales, UK. In October 2019, I started a position as Professor in Theoretical Quantum Technology, jointly at RWTH Aachen and the Forschungszentrum Jülich in Germany.
