Dr. Miller has extensive experience in the analysis of longitudinal data from North Carolina and New York. Currently, he is the Principal Investigator on an evaluation of the effects of three high school reform models on student on-track progression through the mathematics and science course pipelines in North Carolina between 1998 and 2010. In another project using longitudinal personnel data from New York State, Dr. Miller is examining principal retention and the effects of principals on teacher retention between 1990 and 2008.
