Bio

Long interested in social norms, Professor Miller has investigated the processes underlying the development, transmission, and modification of group norms. He has been especially interested in the emergence and perpetuation of social norms that lack broad support. A second focus of his research is how the belief that one is moral develops and shapes one’s thoughts and actions. He has also studied and written on behavioral change strategies and interventions.

He has served on the editorial board of several scientific journals and currently serves on the editorial board of several scientific journals and currently serves on the editorial boards of the Social Justice Research, Motivational Science, and Psychological Inquiry. He has received numerous awards and has been a visiting fellow at both the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences at Stanford and the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton.

At Stanford University since 2002, he is the Class of 1968 / Ed Zschau Professor of Organizational Behavior. He currently teaches the MBA Leadership Laboratory.
