Armin Müller is a post-doctoral researcher in the project “Dynamics of Chinese Social Policy: The Interplay of National and International Influences (DFG Research Grant; SFB 1342)“. He formerly worked at Georg-August-Universität Göttingen. His research focuses on social protection and the healthcare system in the People’s Republic of China, as well as vocational education and migration. He wrote his PhD about China’s rural health insurance at the University of Duisburg-Essen, and spent one semester with the Transnational Studies Initiative at Harvard University studying transnational forms of social security.

The project is part of the Collaborative Research Centre 1342 of the German Research Foundation (DFG) Global Dynamics of Social Policy.
