Trained in medical anthropology as well as Internal Medicine and Pediatrics, Dr. Miller’s research has included examination of sex trafficking among adolescents in Asia, teen dating abuse, and reproductive health with a focus on underserved youth populations including pregnant and parenting teens; and foster, homeless and gang-affiliated youth.

She conducts research on brief clinical interventions to reduce partner violence and unintended pregnancy, funded by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development and the National Institute of Justice. In addition, she is conducting a study of a sexual violence prevention program titled “Coaching Boys into Men,” which involves training coaches to talk to their young male athletes about stopping violence against women – funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. She is also involved in projects to reduce gender-based violence, and improve adolescent and young adult women’s health in India and Japan.
