Markus Müller is a theoretical quantum physicist. Since 2019, he is 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. He is working in quantum information processing and quantum simulation of many-body quantum physics using atomic, molecular and optical (AMO) systems. During the last years, a main focus of his work has been on topological quantum computing and error correction, as well as the study of topological quantum phases in condensed-matter and cold atom systems.
He enjoys working at the interface between theory and experiment, and in particular bridging the gap between theoretical models and experimental implementations.
