Brett Miller, Ph.D., directs the Reading, Writing, and Related Learning Disabilities Program in the CDB Branch.  Dr. Miller completed his Ph.D. at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst in cognitive psychology and a postdoctoral fellowship at Haskins Laboratories in reading research.  Dr. Miller's research program focuses on developing and supporting research and training initiatives to increase knowledge relevant to the development of reading and written-language abilities for learners with and without disabilities.  This program supports research that includes work with diverse groups and includes a range of ages across the lifespan.  Before joining the NICHD, Dr. Miller held the position of associate research scientist at the Institute of Education Sciences at the U.S. Department of Education.  In this capacity, he served as program official for the National Center for the Study of Adult Learning and Literacy, the Mathematics and Science Education Research Program, and co-program officer for the Cognition and Student Learning Program.
