Dr. Peter Mueller is a Experimental Physicist in the Physics Division at Argonne National Laboratory. He received his PhD in Physics in 2003 from Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz, Germany before becoming a postdoctoral fellow at Argonne’s Physics Division in 2003 and receiving Argonne’s Willard Frank Libby Postdoctoral Fellowship in 2005. He has been a staff scientist at Argonne since 2007 and an Affiliate Assistant Professor at the University of Washington, Seattle since 2012. He received a Young Scientist Prize in Nuclear Physics of the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics in 2010, a DOE Office of Science Early Career Grant in 2011, and a Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers in 2012. Dr. Mueller’s research interests lie in low-energy tests of fundamental symmetries and interactions, nuclear structure studies via laser spectroscopy, and in the application of laser spectroscopy for ultra-sensitive trace-isotope analysis.
