Prof. Miller leads the Columbia University Experimental Cosmology group, dedicated to studying relic signatures from the Big Bang with the goal of understanding the origin and evolution of the universe. Specifically, the team studies the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) and the Sunyaev-Zel'dovich Effect (SZE) using sensitive centimeter and millimeter-wave instruments designed specifically for this work. The Columbia team designs, builds, deploys, and analyzes data from novel telescopes employing cutting edge technology, much of which is piloted and tested by the group. Columbia's current CMB projects, QUIET and EBEX are designed to probe detailed physics in the universe when it was much less than one second old. The QUIET instrument, observed the CMB from 17,000 ft. in the Atacama desert in Chile from 2008-2010. The EBEX experiment is has completed it's engineering flight and is currently in preparation for the long duration science flight from Antarctica.
