Christoph Müller joined ETH Zurich on 1st January, 2010 to head the Laboratory of Energy Science and Engineering. Born 1978 in Nuremberg (Germany) he received his undergraduate degree (Dipl.-Ing.) at the TU München, Department of Mechanical Engineering. He received his PhD in 2008 at the Department of Chemical Engineering, University of Cambridge. His doctoral thesis was entitled “Fundamental Aspects of Fluidised Bed Reactors“. On the basis of that work, he was awarded a Junior Research Fellowship at Queens’ College, University of Cambridge in October 2007. In 2009 he also received the Danckwerts-Pergamon Prize for his PhD thesis. He was Director of Studies in Chemical Engineering, Queens’ College, University of Cambridge from 2008-2009.
Research in the Laboratory of Energy Science and Engineering is aimed at applying a fundamental understanding gained from laboratory-scale experiments, together with appropriate mathematical modelling, to the industrial challenges of generating electricity in efficient and sustainable ways. Such research requires attention both to detailed reaction engineering and to the overall power cycle, within which new processes will fit.
The three main research areas of the Laboratory of Energy Science and Engineering are: (i) sustainable electricity generation (e.g. post-combustion CO2 separation, chemical looping combustion, biomass, generation of ultra-pure hydrogen), (ii) heterogeneous reaction engineering and (iii) fundamentals of multi-phase granular systems using experimental techniques such as Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) or Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) and numerical approaches such as Discrete Element Modelling (DEM).
