Dr. David Miller joined the National Energy Technology Laboratory’s (NETL) Computational Science Division in 2009 as a general engineer after a ten-year career as a professor of chemical engineering at the Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology. Since joining the lab, Miller has led the Department of Energy's Carbon Capture Simulation Initiative (CCSI) from its inception. CCSI is a partnership among national labs, universities, and industry to develop, demonstrate, and deploy new computational tools and models aimed at accelerating the development and scale up of new carbon capture technologies.

The initiative, which includes participants spread across multiple organizations and states, has been highly successful, developing innovative computational tools and models, which are currently licensed by over 10 companies.  Miller states, “One of the most rewarding parts of my job has been working with an interdisciplinary, geographically dispersed team of brilliant, hardworking scientists and engineers.” For his work with CCSI, Miller received a 2014 Arthur S. Flemming Award, recognizing exceptional achievement in federal government service. Miller was chosen for the award in recognition of his innovative leadership as Technical Director of CCSI.
