Welcome! The Miller Group specializes in design and optimization of wave systems at the micro and nanoscales, especially for energy applications (e.g. photovoltaics). Our primary interests are in designing device performance to approach limits set by fundamental physical principles, as well as discovering those limits ourselves. We leverage computation and analytical theory in our work, while collaborating with groups at Yale and beyond to experimentally test and verify our ideas. Take a look at our Research page to learn more!

We are in Yale’s Applied Physics department and are affiliated with the Energy Sciences Institute, alongside faculty from diverse departments including chemistry, mechanical engineering, and chemical and environmental engineering. We are actively recruiting graduate students and post-docs – come join us!
