Biography

Naomi Miller has been a Senior Lighting Research Scientist since joining PNNL in 2009. Ms. Miller's work focuses on bridging the knowledge gap between technology and application. She works with clients and stakeholders to overcome the hurdles facing the adoption of energy efficient lighting products. Her research also focuses on lighting quality and the human impacts of light.

Prior to coming to PNNL, Ms. Miller was the Principal of Naomi Miller Lighting Design in Troy, New York. With over 30 architectural lighting design awards, Ms. Miller is a nationally recognized expert in the field of lighting. She chaired the Illuminating Engineering Society's (IES) Quality of the Visual Environment committee for 8 years and was a principal member of the writing team for the IES's Light + Design: A Guide to Designing Quality Lighting for People and Buildings. She currently serves on the Illuminating Engineering Society's Board of Directors and is both a Fellow of the IES and the International Association of Lighting Designers (IALD)
