Summary

Christian Müller was born in Germany in 1972. He studied Chemistry at the University of Bielefeld and the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor (USA) and received his Ph.D. under the supervision of Prof. Dr. P. Jutzi at the University of Bielefeld/Germany in 2000. He was awarded with a fellowship of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) to work with Prof. Dr. W. D. Jones at the University of Rochester, New York (USA) and started in 2002 a second postdoc with Prof. Dr. P. W. N. M. van Leeuwen at the University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Afterwards he joined the group of Prof. Dr. D. Vogt at Eindhoven University of Technology in 2003 where he got appointed as Assistant Professor in 2004. In 2008 he received the prestigious Vidi grant from the Netherlands Organization of Scientific Research (NWO) to conduct research in the field of low-coordinate organophosphorus chemistry. In summer 2011 he got nominated to Associate Professor of Inorganic Chemistry and Homogeneous Catalysis at Eindhoven University of Technology, which he refused to accept. Instead he got appointed full Professor of Inorganic Chemistry at the Free University of Berlin, Germany, where he started in February 2012. His research interests are centered around the subjects “low-coordinate phosphorus and arsenic compounds”, “activation of small molecules”, “functional coordination compounds”, and “homogeneous catalysis”.
