Brief Bio:
Dr. Miller received a B.S. in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Minnesota in 1986. He later returned to his alma mater and received a master’s degree in Civil Engineering with a focus in fluid mechanics, and a PhD in Mechanical Engineering with focus in diesel emissions and nanoparticles. Art's background is diverse, including work as an aircraft mechanic and pilot, a stint at the Technical University of West Berlin in turbulence research, and considerable experience in the underground mining industry. Dr. Miller has worked nine years with NIOSH at the Spokane Research Lab. In addition to project work, he has worked closely with the Gonzaga University Engineering Dept, leading several student teams, two of which won national awards for their design projects. He has also been active in the AIAA, ASME, AAAR and Water Jet Technology Associations. His current research focus addresses occupational exposures to chemical hazards and ultrafine aerosols. In this work he is developing and marketing a portable nanoparticle sampler, designing a system for real time mapping of nanoaerosol concentrations in workplaces and recently completed a prototype web based nanoparticle information library (NIL), available at the following link: ( Art is also on the steering committee for NIOSH’s nanotechnology research center and is a key player on their recently formed “nanotechnology field investigation team”.
