Michael Müller studied aerospace engineering at the Technical University München, where he also received a PhD in engineering. Since 2004 he is working at ESO initially in the system analysis department and later in the mechanical department, where he is responsible for the structural analysis group. During the conceptual design phase of the ELT, Müller was involved in the design of the telescope structure and the 5 mirror units of the telescope. Especially he took care of the modelling of the structure-control interaction as well as the structure-optics interaction. In addition to these kind of system simulations, he is currently managing the design contract for the mechanical units of the secondary and tertiary mirrors.
