Prof. A.J. Müller is a Materials Engineer (Simón Bolívar University, Caracas, Venezuela) specialized in Polymer Science. He holds a Masters degree in Chemistry (IVIC, Caracas, Venezuela) and a Ph.D. in Physics (from Bristol University, U.K.). At Bristol he studied polymer physics under the joint supervision of Jeff Odell and Andrew Keller.

Honors and awards

Emeritus Professor from Simón Bolívar University (USB), Caracas, Venezuela. Editor for "Polymer Physics and Technology" of the EUROPEAN POLYMER JOURNAL (EPJ). Editor in Chief, Revista Latinoamericana de Metalurgia y Materiales (LatinAmerican Journal of Metallurgy and Materials) (RLMM). Corresponding Member of the National Academy of Engineering and Habitat from Venezuela. He received the Lorenzo Mendoza National Science Prize (Polar Prize) in Venezuela (1995) and the International Paul J. Flory Award (2011) from the POLYCHAR organization.


His fields of interests include: polymer solution rheology, structured fluids, morphology, nucleation, crystallization and crystallization kinetics of semi-crystalline materials and of multiphasic materials (in particular polymer blends, block copolymers, biopolymers and nano-composites). He has co-authored more than 400 publications, from which 200 have been published in international peer review journals (indexed in the SCI). He has tutored 89 B.Sc. thesis and 54 postgraduate thesis (both M.Sc. and Ph.D.). Prof. Müller has given more than 60 keynote, plenary and invited lectures in more than 20 countries around the world.
