Collin Mueller's program of research is conceptually grounded in life course, critical race, and cumulative advantage / disadvantage approaches. Mueller specializes in mixed methods research design, team-based ethnographic and in-depth interviewing techniques, and quantitative methods for analyzing longitudinal survey data. Dr. Mueller's current research examines how individuals perceive unfair treatment and make sense of organizational dynamics unfolding in healthcare and human service settings in the context of their longer-term employment, healthcare usage, and functional health trajectories.
