Professor of Biology, Brown University
Ken Miller is professor of Biology at Brown University. He has written two books on the subject of evolution and God, including Finding Darwin's God.
Miller is a strong advocate for "pro-science" candidates in politics and has appeared in court as a witness in cases concerning the teaching of intelligent design in schools. Miller has been recognized by the American Society for Cell Biology and the American Association for the Advancement of Science. He has made several appearances in mainstream media and comedy, including the Colbert Report.
Miller taught at Harvard from 1974 to 1980, and currently teaches at Brown. He has authored a number of college and high school science textbooks.
In 2009, Dr. Miller received the AAAS Award for Public Engagement with Science, and in 2011 he was presented with the Stephen Jay Gould Prize by the Society for the Study of Evolution.
Prof. Miller is a Christian in the Roman Catholic traditon. He gave a Faraday Institute lecture at Cambridge University in April 2009 on "God, Darwin and Design" and appeared on the Today Programme arguing, "The issue of God is an issue on which reasonable people may differ, but I certainly think that it's an over-statement of our scientific knowledge and understanding to argue that science in general, or evolutionary biology in particular, proves in any way that there is no God."
