Jennifer Miller, Ph.D.
Department of Geography and the Environment
Dr. Jennifer Miller teaches introductory and advanced courses in GIS at the undergraduate level. Her graduate seminars focus on GIScience and ecological applications.
Dr. Miller's general research interests lie at the confluence of GIScience, spatial analysis, and biogeography. Her specific research focus is in the application area of species distribution modeling (SDM), and much of her previous work has addressed explicitly spatial issues associated with SDM, such as incorporating spatial autocorrelation and representing spatial accuracy and uncertainty. 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.
