Miller Brings Public Policy Expertise To Gies

Nolan Miller, the Daniel and Cynthia Mah Helle Professor in Finance, is a recognized expert in business and public policy. He has been part of Gies College of Business since 2009, and he is also the director of the University of Illinois’ Center for Business and Public Policy and a research associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research.

Most recently, Miller’s research has focused on a five-year project funded by the National Institute on Aging to study the impact of environmental factors such as temperature and pollution on health outcomes using Medicare data.

“I’m honored to be part of a College that promotes rigorous research about how market forces and public policy shape one another,” said Miller. “How society chooses to address today’s major public policy challenges will fundamentally shape the future of the US economy.”

Miller has regularly appeared on the “List of Teachers Ranked as Excellent by Their Students.” He received the Teaching Excellence Award from the Illinois Student Government in 2016 and the Arnold O. Beckman Award from the Campus Research Board in 2014.

Prior to joining Gies College of Business in 2009, he was an associate professor of public policy at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University. He earned his PhD in managerial economics and decision sciences from Northwestern University in 1999 and bachelor’s degrees in philosophy and economics from the University of Pennsylvania in 1994.
