Carrie Miller, a native Hoosier, is an assistant professor in the Department of Biology and Chemistry. She fell in love with chemistry in her high school classes and continues to thrill in learning how the world works. As an undergraduate at Wittenberg University in Ohio, she organized a “Girl Scout Science Night” to help promote STEM fields to girls. In graduate school at the University of Notre Dame, her research focused on developing and applying computational methods for biomolecular research. She pursued teaching opportunities as a teaching assistant and by volunteering as a math teacher with the South Bend Center for the Homeless. Her post-doctoral fellowship at Georgetown University helped her expand her research interests to include electron-transfer proteins, which she plans on continuing to investigate with students. At Azusa Pacific, Miller is interested in exploring ways to help students improve the way they communicate scientific ideas.
