David C. Miller is the senior fellow for Process Systems Engineering and Analysis at the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) where he leads the Institute for the Design of Advanced Energy Systems (IDAES), a collaboration among researchers from NETL, Sandia National Laboratory, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Carnegie Mellon University, and West Virginia University, that is developing next generation process systems engineering tools for the identification, synthesis, optimization and analysis of innovative advanced energy systems at scales ranging from process to system to market.
Previously, he served as the Technical Director of the Carbon Capture Simulation Initiative (CCSI) leading a team of over 100 researchers from five national laboratories and five universities. He recently led the transition of CCSI to a second phase which is applying the CCSI computational approaches to reduce technical risk while accelerating the scale up of new carbon capture technologies.
Dr. Miller is a recipient of the Arthur S. Flemming Award for Exceptional Federal Service, Applied Science and Engineering.
Prior to joining NETL, Dr. Miller spent a decade in academia, rising to the rank of Associate Professor with tenure. He earned his Ph.D. in chemical engineering from The Ohio State University.
