Staff Profile

Peter Mueller is a Research Scientist at the MGH Institute for Technology Assessment. He joined the ITA as a post-doctoral research fellow in 2017. He received his PhD and MA in Mathematics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and a BS in Math from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. Peter’s focus in graduate school was applied math and fluid dynamics, more specifically, biomixing (with a focus on the mixing caused by algae at the microscopic level). He began his schooling as a Chemistry major with the intent of going to medical school but ended up focusing on his talents for math and problem-solving. Peter was eventually called back to medicine through medical research presentations at fluid dynamics conferences. His favorite research areas include optimization and mathematical modeling. Aside from research, Peter also enjoys teaching and especially tutoring.

Peter is currently working with Dr. Pari Pandharipande and Dr. Jagpreet Chhatwal.
