Professor Miller received a B.A. degree in psychology from Millersville University in Pennsylvania. He completed an M.A. (2003) and a Ph.D. (2005) in Cognitive Psychology at The State University of New York at Binghamton. Professor Miller joined the faculty at Willamette University in 2005. His teaching interests include introductory psychology, cognitive processes, statistics, and research methods. His primary research area is that of human memory. Specifically, Professor Miller is interested in the interaction between memory systems and perceptual systems, and the manner in which these systems work in concert to allow the formation of representations of the physical world around us. Of particular interest to Dr. Miller is the role of perceptual fluency (the speed and ease with which we process a stimulus) in how we make memory decisions.
