Dr. David C. Miller

Senior Fellow, National Energy Technology Laboratory


Dr. David C. Miller is the Senior Fellow for Process Systems Engineering at the National Energy Technology Laboratory and the Technical Director of the Institute for the Design of Advanced Energy Systems (IDAES), a virtual organization with researchers from NETL, Sandia National Laboratories, 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) where he provided overall leadership to a virtual organization with an annual budget of $10 million, consisting of over 100 researchers from five national laboratories and five universities and a stakeholder group with representatives from over 20 companies. He led the successful development, demonstration, and deployment of the R&D 100 Award winning “CCSI Toolset”, a suite of computational tools and models to accelerate the development and scale up of carbon capture technologies. He is a recipient of the Arthur S. Flemming Award for Exceptional Federal Service, Applied Science and Engineering. Prior to joining the U.S. Department of Energy, Dr. Miller spent a decade in academia, rising to the rank of Associate Professor. He has a Ph.D. in chemical engineering from The Ohio State University.
