About Eric L. Miller

Eric L. Miller earned his bachelor’s, master’s, and doctorate degree in electrical engineering and computer science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. From 1994-2006 he was on the faculty in the department of electrical and computer engineering (ECE) at Northeastern University. Since 2007, Miller has been a professor of electronics and communicaiton engineeringat Tufts University, where he was chair from 2012-2021. He holds secondary appointments in the departments of mathematics, computer science, and biomedical engineering. He is a senior scientist at the Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging at Tufts University and the inaugural director of the Tufts Institute for Artificial Intelligence. Miller’s research focuses on physics and statistically-based signal and image processing. He has pursued an interdisciplinary research program combining both theoretical development and practical application across problem areas, including subsurface sensing for environmental monitoring and remediation, nondestructive evaluation, bio-optical imaging and microscopy, as well as the cognitive and social sciences. Miller is a member of Tau Beta Pi, Phi Beta Kappa, and Eta Kappa Nu, and is a fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). He received the Faculty Early Career Development Program (CAREER) Award from the National Science Foundation in 1996 and the Outstanding Research Award from the College of Engineering at Northeastern University in 2002.
