Shelie Miller selected as a Kavli Frontiers Fellow by the National Academy of Science


Shelie Miller, PhD, and SNRE Associate Professor, has been selected as a Kavli Frontiers Fellow by the National Academy of Science.

Jointly sponsored by the US National Academy of Sciences and The Kavli Foundation, the Kavli Frontiers of Science bring together some of the very best young scientists (under age 45) to discuss exciting advances and opportunities in their fields in a format that encourages informal collective, as well as one-on-one discussions among participants.

“It's a great honor to be recognized as one of the top young scientists in my field,” said Miller. The Frontiers of Science experience was incredible. Having the opportunity to interact with scientists from a broad range of disciplines and discuss major issues within the scientific community was extremely energizing. The symposium motivated me to look at my work differently and think even more broadly about conducting impactful research,” she added.

Miller’s research interests center around the life cycle impacts of emerging energy systems and some of her recent work focuses on the noncarbon aspects of biofuels, such as disruptions to the nitrogen cycle and changes in land use. She teaches Environmental Systems Analysis at the graduate level and Ecological Issues at the undergraduate level.
