Goran Muić was born in Zagreb on October 7, 1969. He graduated in mathematics at the University of Zagreb in 1993, where he also obtained his M.Sc. degree in 1996, and his Ph.D. degree in 1997. Since 1993, he is Teaching Assistant at the Department of Mathematics of University of Zagreb. In 2000, he obtained the position of Assistant Professor at the same department. In 2004, he was promoted to the position of Associate Professor and in 2007 to the position of Full Professor.
From 1997 till 2000 he was Burgess Instructor at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, where he obtained the price “Outstanding Instructorship Award”. Immediately after his arrival in U.S., he obtained a three year NSF grant. He obtained a Humboldt Scholarship, spending the winter semester of 2005/06 at the Humbolt University in Berlin. From October 1, 2008 till February 28, 2009, he was Senior Research Fellow at the Erwin Schroedinger Institute in Vienna. In 2004, he obtained the Award of Croatian Mathematical Society for Young Mathematicians for Contributions to Mathematics.
At the Erwin Schroedinger Institute in Vienna he organized two big two months lasting programs covering all the important directions of research in modern theory of automorphic forms. His co-organizers were J. Schwermer (Director of ESI), J.W. Cogdell (Ohio State University Columbus), and C. Mœglin (Universite Denis Diderot, Paris VII).
He was an invited guest at a number of universities in Austria, France, Germany, Hungary, Hong Kong, Israel, Japan and U.S. He has given more than 40 invited lectures and he has 46 published papers, one accepted for publication, and one submitted preprint.
The research field of Goran Muić is modern theory of automorphic forms and representation theory, as it is formulated in Langlands program.
He was the Chairman of the Department of Mathematics of the University of Zagreb. His Ph.D. students were among others N. Grbac, M. Hanzer, I. Matić, Iva Kodrnja and Sonja Žunar. He was an editor of the journal “Glasnik Matematički”. He is a head of “Unitary Representations and Automorphic Forms Seminar”.
In May of 2018 he was elected to the Croatian Academy of Arts and Sciences as a full member.
