Olivia Miller, GSAS

Olivia Miller is a doctoral candidate in Physics at the Harvard Graduate School of Arts and Sciences.  She currently conducts research with a neurobiology group here at Harvard where she hopes to better understand neural development particularly in the auditory system.  Olivia grew up in the foothills of East Tennessee and attended East Tennessee State University (ETSU) where she received her B.S. summa cum laude in physics.  As an undergraduate, Olivia explored as many research areas as she could.  She has had the opportunity to partake in Astronomy and Biophysics research at ETSU, Atomic Molecular and Optical (AMO) research at Bucknell University, and Experimental High Energy Physics research at both Duke University and CERN in Geneva, Switzerland.  Olivia is not only passionate about better understanding the universe and all of its components, but she is also passionate about teaching and improving the environment for women in male dominated fields.   Though still uncertain of her path after graduate school, Olivia hopes to continue following her passions of learning and teaching.
