Gordon J. Miller, University Professor of Chemistry received his B.S. from the University of Rochester in 1982 and his Ph.D. from the University of Chicago in 1986. Following postdoctoral work at the Max-Planck Institute for Solid State Research in Stuttgart, Germany, he joined the faculty at Iowa State in 1990. His group's research efforts focus on experimental and theoretical solid state chemistry, with a specific emphasis on structure-property relationships in metal-rich compounds. He has received the Exxon Faculty Fellowship in Solid State Chemistry, and serves on the Editorial Advisory Boards for Inorganic Chemistry, Journal of Solid State Chemistry, and Zeitschrift fuer Anorganische und Allgemeine Chemie.
