Assistant Professor of Education

Professor Miller is a learning scientist who conducts design-based research focused on teaching and learning around models, and on students’ engagement with scientific and engineering practices (modeling, data analysis and interpretation, evidence-based argumentation, etc.) in the context of pre-K – grade 12 STEM education. She is particularly interested in students’ engagement with scientific practices around models and representations in the context of Earth Science and in pedagogical strategies and learning environments that support that engagement. Prior to pursuing her Ph.D., Miller taught for nine years at the secondary level and that experience informs her research interests in Earth science teaching and learning, modeling and visualization, and teacher education.
