Clemens Müller is a Researcher with IBM Research Zurich, working on the theory of superconducting quantum circuits and the origin of decoherence in solid-state quantum devices.
He obtained his PhD in 2011 from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany, for his thesis entitled "Coherent Defects in Superconducting circuits" which investigated the interactions between atomic scale defects and superconducting quantum circuits.
Immediately after his Phd he spent two years as a postdoctoral researcher with Prof Alexandre Blais in Sherbrooke, Canada, moving into circuit QED and quantum measurement theory. Following this, he stayed at the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia, working with Prof Tom Stace on design of superconducting quantum devices and decoherence theory.
After a short stay at ETH Zurich with Prof Gianni Blatter in the first half of 2018, he joined IBM Research Zurich in July 2018 as a Visiting Scientist in the Quantum Technologies group.
