Michael Mueger (1965) studied physics at the Technical University Darmstadt, where he obtained his diploma in 1992. He received his PhD in mathematical physics from Hamburg University in 1997. From then until 2004 he worked as a postdoc in the mathematics departments of the universities Tor Vergata and La Sapienza (Rome), of Universite Louis Pasteur (Strasbourg), where he obtained his habilitation diriger des recherches in 2002, at the School of Mathematics of Tel Aviv University, at MSRI (Berkeley) and at the Korteweg-de Vries Institute (UvA). Since 2004 he works at Radboud University (Nijmegen), now as universitair docent in Analysis and Mathematical Physics.
Mueger’s research currently focuses on category theory, low dimensional topology, quantum groups, operator algebras and rigorous quantum field theory (axiomatic, constructive, conformal, topological).
