Welcome to the newses FAU EAM member Prof. Dr. Carolin Müller

Carolin Müllers academic journey began at Friedrich Schiller University Jena, where she earned her Master of Science degree in chemistry in 2018. From 2018 to 2021, she delved into her doctoral studies at the same university, guided by Benjamin Dietzek-Ivanšić. After completing her doctorate, she spent a year as a postdoctoral researcher with Benjamin Dietzek-Ivanšić. Afterwards she moved to the University of Luxembourg, where she joined the Theoretical Chemical Physics group, led by Alexandre Tkatchenko, as a Feodor Lynen Postdoctoral researcher of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation in June 2022. In November 2023, she joined the FAU Erlangen-Nürnberg as Assistant Professor for the Theory of Electronically Excited States.

Her research is about exploring the fascinating world of light-induced processes in chemistry, from the lively dance of electrons to the magical transformation of molecules. Her main focus is on generating, analysing, and archiving data related to excited states. To accomplish this, she blends the tools of quantum chemistry, chemoinformatics, and spectroscopy into a dynamic team to unlock the secrets behind these impressive light-driven phenomena.
