Faculty Expert Profile

Scot Miller

  • Assistant Professor of Environmental Health and Engineering


  • Whiting School of Engineering

Scot M. Miller is a professor of environmental health and engineering. Miller studies the emissions of greenhouse gases and air pollutants. His lab, the Greenhouse Gas Research Group, uses observations of greenhouse gases collected from airplanes, towers, and satellites to estimate emissions across individual states to continents.

His recent projects focus on global change in the Arctic, greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture, and emissions from energy industries (such as coal, oil, and natural gas). Miller’s work also utilizes statistics, high performance computing, and tools for big data. A 2019 paper he coauthored in Nature Communications demonstrated that China’s coal mine methane regulations have not had a detectable impact on the country’s emissions.

Miller holds a grant from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) to study carbon dioxide sources and sinks using the OCO-2 (Orbiting Carbon Observatory 2) satellite. This is a joint project with Northern Arizona University, the Carnegie Institution for Science and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). In 2018, Miller and Sarah Jordaan of the School of Advanced International Studies received a Johns Hopkins Discovery Award to study trends in methane emissions from oil and gas infrastructure in the United States.
