Tobias Müller

I am an assistant professor at the mathematical institute of Utrecht University. Before joining Utrecht University, I was a researcher at the Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI). Prior to that I did postdocs in Eindhoven and in Tel Aviv, and before that I did my doctorate in Oxford under the supervision of Colin McDiarmid. Before starting my doctorate, I worked for a couple of years as a statistical consultant at CANdiensten b.v.

I organize the Stochastics Seminar in Utrecht.


This term, I am teaching the first year undergraduate course Inleiding Kansrekening en Statistiek (WISB161) and the "olympic seminar" (WISB305). This last course is joint with Frits Beukers and Gunther Cornelissen.
Courses I have been involved in earlier include the third year undergraduate course "Kaleidoscoop 2" (WISB303), the third year undergraduate course Project (WISB302), the master course Probabilistic and Extremal Combinatorics (WISM561) (the latter course is joint with Ross Kang), and the master course Modern Theory of Markov Chains (WISS133). The Markov chains course is currently in the able hands of Siamak Taati.


I work in combinatorics and probability. My research interests include graphs in various flavours (random, extremal, coloured, fractional), percolation, discrete and stochastic geometry, random matrices, asymptotic and probabilistic combinatorics and combinatorial games.

Here are preprint versions of some of my research articles.

Past workshop organization

For nostalgic reasons, I still maintain a link to the website of the Stochastic Acitivity Month on Combinatorics and Probability which took place in January 2014. (Activities included a workshop on "Probability and Graphs" and mini-courses on graph limits, analysis of Boolean functions and Probabilistic aspects of Minimal Spanning Trees); a link to the website of the Utrecht Graphs Workshop which took place on Thursday 31 October and Friday 1 November 2013; the website of the STAR Workshop on Random Graphs that took place in Utrecht on 1 and 2 November 2012, the website of a workshop on probabilistic and algebraic methods in discrete mathematics that took place in Amsterdam on 6 December 2010, and a link to the webpage of the Postgraduate Combinatorial Conference 2005 that took place on 21-23 March 2005 in Oxford.
