Research Interests:
Dr. Miller is interested in how neural circuits in the retina develop and function to process visual information. He began studying the retina as a graduate student, where he characterized how a gene called pappaa regulates synapses between cone photoreceptors and OFF bipolar cells for signaling light decrements. As a postdoctoral researcher, he joined the Sinha lab to study how the macula is specialized to process high-acuity central vision.
