Miller joined the BYU History Department in 1997 after completing his Ph.D. at Columbia University. He specializes in the colonial and environmental history of Brazil and Latin America. He served as department chair from 2007-2010, and his scholarship and teaching were honored in 2006 with the BYU Class of '49 Young Faculty Award.
