Carl Miller is an Adjunct Associate Professor in the Institute for Advanced Computer Studies, and a Mathematician in the Computer Security Division at NIST. His research is on developing new cryptography for the quantum era. Topics of interest include verifiable random number generation, quantum protocols between mutually mistrustful parties, and classical "postquantum" cryptographic protocols. Miller also studies applications to quantum information of concepts that originated in pure mathematics.

Miller received a Ph. D. in mathematics from Berkeley in 2007, and was a research fellow in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department at the University of Michigan before joining QuICS.
