Kenny Miller joined the College in 2009. He was born in Pittsburgh, PA, and spent his formative years in Augusta, Georgia. He attended the University of Georgia, earning a B.S. in Chemistry in 2002. He then moved to Austin, TX, to earn a Ph.D. from the University of Texas-Austin under the supervision of Stephen Martin. Before his current appointment, Dr. Miller was a postdoctoral fellow at Colorado State University, studying the biosynthetic origin of several related indole alkaloids. Kenny focuses his research on applying synthetic techniques to solve important problems. His students have developed the synthesis of antiviral, anticancer, and antiparasitic compounds. His research group is currently studying the water-splitting reactions for storing solar energy.
