Time Scales is a branch of mathematics which seeks to unify and extend mathematical theory that has been developed for discrete and continuous time domains. Thus, this new mathematical framework is particularly suited for mixed analog/digital systems. Mr. Miller is interested in the application of new mathematical techniques to engineering problems.

Small scale energy systems is another area of interest with two main application foci. The first application is in developed countries and includes topics like renewable energy sources and smart grid interface technologies. The other application focuses on developing countries.

According to a 2002 International Energy Agency (IEA) study, there are 1.6 billion people who do not have access to electricity. One way to combat this problem is by introducing small scale, easily maintainable, culturally acceptable energy systems using renewable energy sources, such as micro-hydro or solar photovoltaic. These types of projects also fall under the umbrella of appropriate technology. Two other major aspects of these projects are the ability to involve students (even early in their academic careers) and to share the gospel of Jesus Christ in conjunction with meeting practical needs.
