Biography

Dr. Miller is a Supervising Health Scientist with Cardno ChemRisk, located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Her primary training and area of expertise include analytical chemistry, in vitro and alternative methods, toxicology study design, toxicological and analytical chemistry data analysis, and mixtures toxicology. Dr. Miller has demonstrated expertise in toxicological and analytical chemistry product testing for premarket tobacco applications (PMTA), review and derivation of occupational exposure limits (OELs) and permissible exposure limits (PELs) for various industries, and exposure assessment for consumer products. Dr. Miller has also managed occupational health and safety projects related to employee stress, sleep deprivation, and traumatic injury in the workplace. Dr Miller received her PhD from the Department of Chemistry at West Virginia University, where her dissertation utilized early cellular changes to explore biological responses to individual chemical and mixture exposures. Dr. Miller received postdoctoral training at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention – National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), where she evaluated neurobiochemical alterations in vivo after exposure to a mixture of stress, occupational and/or environmental chemical insult to further elucidate the role stress plays in physiological response to external stimuli. Dr. Miller has over 50 published manuscripts, abstracts, and book chapters related to in vitro and in vivo toxicology.
