Marvin Miller retired from the position of Senior Research Scientist in the MIT Department of Nuclear Engineering in 1996.  He is now Senior Scientist Emeritus at both the MIT Center for International Studies, where he is a member of the Security Studies Program, and the Nuclear Engineering Department.  Trained as a physicist, he was a tenured Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering at Purdue University  conducting research on laser theory and applications before joining MIT in 1976.  At MIT his principal activities have been in the areas of nuclear arms control and the environmental impacts of energy use. In arms control, his major regional interests are the Middle East and South Asia. From 1984-86, Dr. Miller was on leave from MIT to serve with the U.S. Arms Control & Disarmament Agency (ACDA) and, after returning to MIT, he continues in that capacity with the State Department.  He also has been a consultant for the International Atomic Energy Agency, the U.S. Department of Energy and Los Alamos and Livermore National Laboratories.  He is the author of more than 80 publications in the fields of laser theory and applications, energy, and arms control.
