Tufts University Professor Eric Miller named IEEE Fellow
Date:12/19/2011

MEDFORD/SOMERVILLE, Mass. Eric Miller, professor of electrical and computer engineering in the School of Engineering at Tufts University, has been elected a fellow by the Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers.

As associate dean for research and principal investigator of the Laboratory for Imaging Science Research, Miller was named a fellow for his research in inverse problems and physics-based signal and image processing. Miller's work has applications for breast cancer research, surveillance, and environmental remediation.

"The advances made in my research group are almost always tied to real-world problems and collaborations across a wide range of disciplines," said Miller. For example, the imaging technology Miller's group has developed can be used for the detection of breast cancer using near infrared light. This collaborative research effort is supported by the National Institutes of Health's National Cancer Institute and led by Professor of Biomedical Engineering Sergio Fantini in collaboration with Professor of Mathematics Misha Kilmer.

Miller is also investigating issues associated with the remediation of subsurface contamination as part of a group that includes Tufts School of Engineering Dean Linda M. Abriola, Professor Kurt Pennell, and Assistant Professor Andrew Ramsburg from the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. Their work has been funded by the Department of Defense's Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program and the National Science Foundation.

With support from the Department of Homeland Security, Miller is employing this technology for the development of new X-ray tomographic imaging methods for airport baggage screening.

Before joining Tufts in 2007, Miller was a professor of electrical and computer engineering at Northeastern University, where he received the university's Outstanding Research Award from the College of Engineering in 2002.

From 1998 to 2002, Miller served as an associate editor for "IEEE Transactions on Image Processing." He is currently serving as an associate editor for the "IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing."

Miller received his B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. in electrical and computer engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. In 1996, Miller received an NSF Career Award. He is also a member of Tau Beta Pi, Phi Beta Kappa and Eta Kappa Nu.

Miller is the fourth member of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering to receive the IEEE Fellow designation. Other IEEE Fellows include: Karen Panetta, Mohammed Afsar and Aleksander Stankovic.
