Caroline Muller is a Visiting Assistant Professor of Mathematics at NYU Abu Dhabi. She is also a CNRS researcher in France. She holds a PhD from the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences at NYU. After her PhD, she worked as a postdoctoral associate at MIT and an associate research scholar at Princeton University.
She then joined the CNRS, first at Ecole Polytechnique, and currently at Ecole Normale Superieure in Paris. Professor Muller is also a lecturer in the geoscience department of Ecole Normale Superieure Paris. Notably, she has been the director of the graduate Summer School on Fluid Dynamics of Sustainability and the Environment, co-organized with colleagues at Ecole Polytechnique and at the University of Cambridge in the UK (fdse.org) between 2012 and 2018.
Professor Muller’s research interests lie in the fields of geophysical fluid dynamics and climate science. She is particularly interested in internal waves in the ocean and cloud processes in the atmosphere. Her work has appeared in international peer-reviewed journals including Nature Climate Change, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America, Journal of Climate, Journal of Geophysical Research, Journal of the Atmospheric Sciences, Journal of Physical Oceanography, or Geophysical Research Letters.
