Meghan Miller, Ph.D.
- Associate Professor, Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences
Dr. Miller is a licensed clinical psychologist whose specialty is in the early diagnosis and co-occurrence of autism and ADHD.
Dr. Miller's research focuses the emergence of, and overlap between, neurodevelopmental disorders, with a particular focus on autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The long-range goal is that her research will help identify factors that account for the transition from risk to disorder, and will delineate core shared processes to be targeted by transdiagnostic prevention and early intervention efforts.
