SawayaResearch Faculty, UCLA Technology CenterUniversity of California Los AngelesBox 951662 Los Angeles, CA 90095-1662, USAPeter Muller has worked in George Sheldrick's research group for over five years, where he received a thorough crystallographic education. He studied chemistry and crystallography (M.S. in 1997) and received his Ph.D. with George Sheldrick in 2001 on a thesis entitled "Problems of Modern High-Resolution Single-Crystal X-Ray Structure Determination" From 2001 to 2004, he spent three years in Los Angeles as a postdoc in David Eisenberg's group at UCLA. There he worked in the field of molecularand structural biology. Currently, he is the director of the X-ray diffraction facility at MIT. Dr. Muller taught basic and advanced crystallography (both theory and lab classes) in Goettingen, Los Angeles and now at MIT, and has held several structure refinement workshops around the USA and in Germany.
