Dr. Miller's research focuses on language and memory.
Specifically, she has studied how normal aging affects the ability to produce
and comprehend language, language production in brain-injured individuals, and
how people produce and comprehend descriptions of interpersonal violence, such
as crime reports published in the mass media.
Dr. Miller also has interests in applied cognitive
psychology, particularly how different pedagogical strategies affect student
comprehension and retention of material in the social and natural sciences.
Dr. Miller was honored to become one of NAU’s President’s
Distinguished Teaching Fellows in 2011.
