Dr. Miller's research and teaching focus on the governance challenges posed by global environmental change, and other policy issues of global scope and significance. He has written extensively on the role of knowledge and expertise in global environmental governance, and his current work expands this research beyond the environment to other domains of human security and insecurity. He is also the Director of the Energy, Society, and Policy Initiative, which seeks to understand the social dynamics and societal implications of large-scale changes in energy systems. His interests include science and technology policy, the democratic governance of science and technology, and models of knowledge, reason, and rationality, especially as they intersect with democratic theory and environmental policy. Dr. Miller teaches courses on science and democracy, knowledge and decisionmaking, international governance, science and technology studies, and the human and social dimensions of science and technology.
