David Miller, AB’05, was named a Neubauer Family Assistant Professor in 2013. Miller works on the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider and helped to construct the ATLAS detector. His experiments seek to harness and study the highest energy interactions ever produced by mankind, and his research has led to the detection of some of the most sensitive measurements of the standard model of particle physics to date.
Miller has received the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship, the Stanford University Kirkpatrick Graduate Teaching Award, the IEEE Real-Time Conference Outstanding Paper Award, and the ATLAS Doctoral Dissertation Award.
Before joining the University of Chicago faculty, Miller was a McCormick Fellow with the University’s Enrico Fermi Institute. He has published a number of articles with Physical Review Letters, the European Physical Journal C, and Physical Review D.
Miller received a bachelor’s degree in physics with a specialization in astrophysics from the University of Chicago and a PhD from Stanford University in philosophy and physics.
