Research Interests

Urban and indoor air quality, control technology, health effects, sources and exposure to particulate air pollution, development and evaluation of indoor air quality control measures

Miller's current research projects include assessing and designing engineering controls such as filtration and ultraviolet germicidal irradiation for improving indoor environmental quality, reducing building energy consumption and improving health, source apportionment of PM2.5 and association with health effects, association of coarse particles with health effects in urban and rural areas, characterization of indoor environmental quality in homes, characterizing ultrafine particles that penetrate into mechanically ventilated buildings, understanding the microbiology of the built environment, studying how HVAC systems play a role in infectious disease transmission, and identifying sources of air toxins and noxious odors in urban communities.  She has received funding for her research program from the US EPA, HUD, CDC, NIOSH, NSF, NIH, ASHRAE, Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, and various private foundations and industry sponsors.
