Professor James P. Miller, Professor of Physics at Boston University, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in physics.
With an aptitude for science and engineering since his high school years, Dr. Miller was ultimately influenced to pursue the field by the impact of an exceptional physics teacher. Commencing his education, he received a Bachelor of Science from Carnegie-Mellon University in 1968 and a Master of Science, later attaining a Doctor of Philosophy from the institution in 1975. To add to his education, Dr. Miller was a postdoctoral fellow at the California Institute of Technology from 1974 to 1976 and at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory from 1976 to 1979.
Spearheading his professional career, Dr. Miller desired to teach and continue his research, leading him to pursue the academic realm. In 1974, he was a physics research associate at the California Institute of technology until 1976, going on to work as a physicist at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory from 1976 to 1979. Dr. Miller began his tenure at Boston University in 1979, teaching as an assistant professor of physics until 1985 and as an associate professor of physics until 1990.
Since 1990, Dr. Miller has excelled as a professor of physics at Boston University, specializing in nuclear and particle physics, using lower energies to study the properties of fundamental particles. A fellow of the American Physical Society as of 1996, he has contributed numerous articles to professional journals, among other additional career feats. Dr. Miller attributes his success thus far in his career to a solid high school education and even more rigorous collegiate education. He adds that enjoys what he is does, which makes it easier to work hard on a rather challenging subject. In his spare time, Dr. Miller enjoys traveling and boating.
