Miller's interests include defect and structural evolution in crystalline material and characterization via advanced electron microscopy techniques. She is particularly focused on deformation processing of metals and the associated microstructural evolution, particularly texture evolution, recovery, and recrystallization.
Assistant Professor Tori Miller joined the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at North Carolina State University in August 2017. Prior to NCSU, she worked as a research scientist at UES, Inc. onsite at the Materials and Manufacturing Directorate of the Air Force Research Laboratory in Dayton, Ohio. She completed her PhD in the Materials Department at the University of California Santa Barbara in 2016, and her BSE at the University of Michigan in 2011. Her group's primary focus is on linking macroscopic processing phenomena to micro- and nanoscale mechanisms, enabling the development of predictive material models for engineering applications. Much of the group's work has been in thermomechanical processing of low-symmetry metals including titanium alloys for aerospace and magnesium alloys for automotive and consumer electronic applications.
