Research Areas

Short Bio

Prof. Mueller’s research interests encompass computational modeling of multi-physics turbulent reacting flows with applications to energy and propulsion, including combustion as well as offshore wind, fusion, and other energy conversion processes. In addition, his research interests extend to broader areas of computational and data sciences including uncertainty quantification, numerical algorithms for emerging parallel computing architectures, and data-based modeling and algorithms. Since 2020, he is jointly appointed as a Faculty Researcher at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. He has been recognized through the Young Investigator Program of the Army Research Office (2017) and with a Research Excellence Award from The Combustion Institute (2020) and has also received the Princeton University Graduate Mentoring Award (2015) and been named to the Princeton Engineering Commendation List for Outstanding Teaching seven times between 2013 and 2020.
