Philipp Müller is currently working as a researcher in the Chair of Architecture and Construction at the Future Cities Laboratory in Singapore. Prior to his studies he made an apprenticeship as a carpenter and worked four years as a carpenter for Hornberger Holzbau GmbH. Philipp Müller received his Bachelor Degree from Technische Universität Berlin TUB. Following his graduation, he worked as a consultant engineer in Madrid, Spain and Dakar, Senegal. In 2011 he started the Master of Science in Civil Engineering at Technische Universität Berlin. During his studies he did the structural design and construction management of earth block buildings for the Mexico Design Build Studio in Oaxaca, Mexico. Having received a TUB scholarship, Philipp Müller pursued his studies at École Polytechnique Montréal in Montréal, Canada. In 2014 he completed his Master studies at TUB with his Master thesis at the Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing BAM in Berlin, Germany. The thesis focused on reliability analysis of load-bearing earth block masonry. Since 2012 he worked as a free-lancer for Ziegert|Roswag|Seiler Architekten und Ingenieure – ZRS-Berlin, since 2014 as full time employee. During this period he was mainly working on structural design of concrete and timber constructions both nationally and internationally. In 2015 he was a member of a ZRS team assessing earthquake damages for the German Development Cooperation GDC in Kathmandu, Nepal after the Magnitude 7.8 earthquake on April 24th.

Philipp Müller was awarded with the Dr.-Ing Ernst Trapp Preis, honouring outstanding Master theses and study performances. He focuses on applications and structural reliability of alternative construction materials. His research deals with mechanical and physical properties of bamboo composite and mycelium composite materials. Within his research he is setting up test procedures and production regulations.
