Research Interests

Dr. Miller’s program of research focuses on symptom management of chronic illness with an emphasis on individuals living with systemic scleroderma. People living with certain chronic illnesses may also struggle to adapt psychologically to the illness experience. His background in both psychology and nursing have influenced his research trajectory. Employing both qualitative and quantitative methods, he investigates how feelings of identity loss, self-diminishment, and biographical disruption relate to symptom management for individuals living with systemic scleroderma. Dr. Miller’s interest in autoimmune disorders also guide his work with systemic scleroderma.
