Dr. Steven A. E. Miller joins UF MAE

Dr. Steven A. E. Miller recently joined the University of Florida (UF), Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering, Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering (MAE). Before joining UF MAE, he spent seven years as a United States civil servant and was appointed to the position of theoretical aeroacoustician (research aerospace engineer) at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). He earned his Ph.D. and M.S. in Aerospace Engineering at the Pennsylvania State University, his B.S. in Mechanical Engineering at Michigan State, performed undergraduate studies in statistics and language at Taganrog State University, Russian Federation, and undergraduate studies at Eastern Michigan University.

Dr. Miller is most passionate about his research in aeroacoustics, turbulence, fluid dynamics, nonlinear propagation, applied mathematics, and associated disciplines. His teaching interests coincide with classes of the aerospace engineering discipline and those that are related to his research. He will soon be teaching compressible flow in the spring, which focuses on the physics of shock waves and expansion waves.

While at NASA, Dr. Miller received numerous awards including the NASA Early Career Achievement Medal for ‘significant research contributions to theoretical jet aeroacoustics and the NASA mission,’ the Doug Ensor Award, the AIAA Hampton Roads Section Robert A. Mitcheltree Young Engineer of the Year Award, and the AIAA Laurence J. Bement Young Professional Paper Award.
