Welcome to the Miller Research Group Website!

Our research group is focused on the synthesis and characterization of novel polymers. Two main research areas are explored:
The synthesis of new polymers from biorenewable feedstocks—with the specific intent of mimicking commodity thermoplastics.
The development of organometallic, single-site catalysts for the polymerization of olefins to polyolefins having novel structure and properties.
