Dr. Miller is a Professor of Ocean Engineering and Oceanography at the University of
Rhode Island. He conducts research and teaches courses in
acoustical oceanography, sonar systems engineering,
acoustic signal processing, underwater acoustics, marine
bio-acoustics, ocean data analysis, modeling, and
underwater vehicle design. He has spent the last few years
developing Long Range Sediment Tomography as a technique to
rapidly estimate the properties of the ocean bottom. His
interests include 3D acoustic propagation in shallow water and
the effects of sea surface waves on acoustic normal modes. He has done
work on the effects of ocean noise on marine
He is a certified SCUBA Diver, licensed Private Pilot, and, over the last few years, spent months at sea on a number of oceanographic research vessels including the R/Vs LC, Endeavor, Knorr, Melville, Revelle, Shi Yan 2 and 3, OR-2, Pt. Sur, Pt. Lobos, Shana Rae, Quest, CT-1, and the USNS Bartlett. He is a registered Professional Engineer in the State of Rhode Island.
