Early life and education

Born in 1956, Miller grew up in Medford, New Jersey. In 1978, he received an A.B. from Rutgers College, and in 1982, received a PhD from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology/Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution Joint Program in Oceanography.

Miller is a veteran of 8 scientific cruises. He has integrated offshore seismic and drilling activities with onshore drilling: since 1993, he has been Chief Scientist of the New Jersey Coastal Plain Drilling Project which continuously cored thirteen sites. He has written more than 100 scientific papers, his most significant publications include widely cited synthesis of Cenozoic oxygen isotopes (Miller et al., 1987) and a synthesis of global sea-level change (Miller et al., 1998, 2005). He was awarded the Rosenstiel Award from the University of Miami in 2003,[2] a two-time JOI/USSAC Distinguished Lecturer (1995, 2006), and a fellow of the American Geophysical Union.
