Michael I. Miller is the Bessie Darling Massey Professor and Director of the Johns Hopkins Department of Biomedical Engineering. He is the founder and director of the Center for Imaging Science, and co-director of the Kavli Neuroscience Discovery Institute.

An internationally recognized leader in medical imaging and brain mapping, Miller pioneered the field of computational anatomy. His research focuses on the functional and structural characteristics of the human brain in health and disease, including Huntington’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and epilepsy. His lab is currently devising cloud-based methods to build and share libraries of brain images—and the algorithms used to understand them—associated with neuropsychiatric illness.

Miller was appointed as one of 17 inaugural University Gilman Scholars in 2011. He has received numerous other honors, including the Herschel Ruth Seder Professorship and the National Science Foundation Presidential Young Investigator Award. He has co-authored more than 200 peer-reviewed publications, as well as two highly cited textbooks on random point processes and computational anatomy. Miller’s research is highly translational, and he has co-founded four start-up companies in the past decade.
