Maureen Miller, PhD, is an applied epidemiologist and entrepreneurial public health consultant with extensive community-based research and population level evaluation experience. Her career straddles both the academic and public spheres. She has been involved in applied infectious disease research, programming and policy for 20 years, has published a number of theoretical and research articles in peer reviewed scientific journals, and has a proven track record in building and developing teams of interdisciplinary professionals to move projects forward on time and on budget. While a full-time professor at Columbia University, where she maintains a faculty appointment, she established Bed Stuy West Community Studies, a successful community-academic health research partnership in the largest Black community in North America.

In addition to conducting research, Dr. Miller consults regularly with government, non- and inter-governmental organizations around the world, as well as with academic institutions. Her completed projects range from the evaluation of an urban syringe exchange program that resulted in national program expansion, to the development of performance frameworks and applied guidance tools addressing human rights and gender equity for inter-governmental organizations, to the creation of a strategic five year HIV prevention plan for a major U.S. city. Dr. Miller is particularly interested in collaborative change through collective impact and is developing methods to evaluate outcomes and impact resulting from these relationships.
