Carrie Miller, a native Hoosier, is an associate 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. Her post-doctoral fellowship at Georgetown University helped her expand her research interests to include electron-transfer proteins. At Azusa Pacific, Miller spends her time working with students on computational chemistry research, teaching general and physical chemistry, and serving as chair of the General Education Council.
