Miller's general research interests lie in the confluence of GIScience,
integration of GIS and remote sensing, and environmental/ecological modeling.
Her specific research focus is in the application area of species distribution
modeling (SDM), and much of her previous work has involved conducting
extensive model comparisons, representing spatial accuracy, and incorporating
spatial autocorrelation in SDM. Current research investigates the effects that
spatial structure, scale and sampling strategies have on SDM using simulated
data; using SDM to investigate the effects of climate change; and using
spatial simulation to analyze (animal) species movement and interaction.
