Dr Sarah Miller
American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Fellow, Directorate for Computer & Information Science & Engineering, National Science Foundation (NSF), USA.
Sarah believes that everyone deserves clean water, wherever they live, whatever their means. Trained as an environmental engineer, she invented and patented a bio-based adsorbent to remove arsenic from water. During her doctoral studies at Yale, she conducted research in India, where arsenic contamination of the groundwater has devastated many rural communities. Sarah also believes that every child deserves an excellent education. She has worked in inner-city public schools and in the Admissions Office of Amherst College, where she earned a B.A. in chemistry. As a Teach For America corps member, she taught math and science in East Palo Alto. Recently, as an administrator, she worked to reinvent one of New Haven’s lowest performing K-8 schools. Sarah currently works as a AAAS Science Policy Fellow at the National Science Foundation.
Dr. Miller acted as Rapporteur in the "Integrating Gender into Research Content and Methods" session at the Gender Summit 3 North America 2013.
