Miller to Receive Alfred University Chancellor's Award

Samuel Miller, a materials and science engineering major in the Inamori School of Engineering at Alfred University (AU), is one of two seniors to receive the State University of New York (SUNY) Chancellor’s Award for Student Excellence. Miller, a resident of Kinsman, Ohio, was among the 243 students selected for the honor statewide. Four of the academic programs in the Inamori School of Engineering–biomedical materials science engineering, ceramic engineering, glass science engineering and materials science and engineering–and the School of Art & Design at Alfred University are part of the statutory College of Ceramics, making students enrolled in those programs eligible for the SUNY awards.

Miller “stands out as one of the top five (among more than 1,000) undergraduate students I’ve worked with in the past 20 years,” wrote Doreen Edwards, dean of the School of Engineering in nominating Miller for the honor. “Sam has excelled academically while engaging in an impressive array of extracurricular activities. With a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.97, Sam has been awarded numerous scholarships for his outstanding achievements.… He also received two notable Alfred University awards, the Faculty Award for Outstanding Senior and the Scholes Scholar Award for the sophomore student with the highest GPA.”

Miller is currently working with Prof. Scott Misture to complete his senior thesis in the area of oxide thermoelectrics. He is synthesizing, characterizing and measuring the thermoelectric properties of reduced niobium oxide materials.
