Eric Müller


Eric Müller received his diploma in Physics in 2009 from the Ruprecht-Karls-Universität Heidelberg, Germany. As a member of the Electronic Vision(s) group of Prof. Karlheinz Meier at the Kirchhoff Institute for Physics, Heidelberg, he received his Ph.D. in 2014.

Since joining the Electronic Vision(s) group (Kirchhoff-Institute for Physics, Heidelberg University) in 2007, he worked with accelerated neuromorphic hardware architectures. In 2021 he joined EINC, Heidelberg University, bringing together electronic, photonic and atomic systems of physical computing.

He is the architect of the BrainScaleS software ecosystem and leads BrainScaleS software development. In the quest to establish BrainScaleS as a discovery machine for neuromorphic algorithm research, his research theme centers around neuromorphic modeling concepts while also introducing research software engineering techniques for sustainable system development and working on platform reliability, reproducibility, and system integration in federated computing resource environments. He works on the interaction between physical and conventional computing systems to transform experimental machines into research platforms for beyond-von-Neumann computing. His research interests include scalable computing, closed-loop information processing, and novel computing paradigms.
