Peter Mueller is Professor of Statistics and Mathematics at UT Austin. He obtained a doctorate in statistics from Purdue University in 1991. He served on the faculty in ISDS, at Duke University (1991-2001), in the Department of Biostatistics at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center (2001-2011) and at the Department of Mathematics and the Department of Statistics and Data Science at University of Texas at Austin (2011-current), and as Adjunct Professor at the Department of Biostatistics at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center (2011-current). Mueller has published over 150 refereed articles in statistics, biostatistics and other journals. He served as president of ISBA, and as chair of ASA/SBSS.

He works on Bayesian inference, with a focus on nonparametric Bayesian methods, simulation based methods, optimal design and multiple comparison procedures. He is interested in applications in biostatistics and bioinformatics, including in particular Bayesian clinical trial design, hierarchical models, population PK/PD models, inference for histone modifications and tumor heterogeneity.
