Casey Miller
Combining Theory and Computation to Advance the Modeling of Two-Fluid Flow in Porous Medium Systems
Professor Miller is educated as an environmental engineer earning his PhD from the University of Michigan in 1984 and beginning his academic career soon after that as an assistant professor in the Department of Environmental Sciences and Engineering at the University of North Carolina, where he has remained on the faculty ever since. He is currently the Okun Distinguished Professor of Environmental Engineering with involvement in multiple departments at UNC (Environmental Sciences and Engineering, Mathematics, and Applied Physical Sciences). He has served as the primary advisor of about 100 post docs and graduate students and produced a total of 730 published works, including a book on the thermodynamically constrained averaging theory, which he coauthored with Bill Gray. Professor Miller has served in a wide range of scientific leadership positions including more than two decades as an editor of leading journals in the field—Environmental Science & Technology, and Advances in Water Resources. Professor Miller was an organizer of the bi-annual conference on Computational Methods in Water Resources for several years. A distinguishing feature of the research of Professor Miller is his joint, synergistic use of theory, computational methods, and experimental approaches to advance understanding of transport phenomena in complex systems.
