PhD Candidate at LAMP
EPFL IC LAMP
Hello. I am a US NSF Graduate Research Fellow and second year PhD student working on the Scala programming language at the Programming Methods Laboratory (LAMP for short) under the supervision of Professor Martin Odersky. Before moving to Switzerland, I was born in and lived in different places in the US.
I am also the Scala "Documentation Czar," and as such am (newly) responsible for state of official Scala documentation.
I'm interested in parallel (and distributed) programming models. Recently, I've worked on,
- a parallel graph processing framework,
- parallel collections,
- (distributing) parallel domain-specific languages
P. Haller and H. Miller, "Parallelizing Machine Learning-- Functionally: A Framework and Abstractions for Parallel Graph Processing," presented at the Scala Workshop 2011, Stanford CA, USA, June 2011.
H. Miller, F. Ingelrest, G. Barrenetxea, M. Vetterli, "A Pragmatic View of Data Compression in Environmental Wireless Sensor Networks," Tech Report.
R. Leeb, M. Gubler, H. Miller, J. Millan, "On the Road to a Neuroprosthetic Hand: A Novel Hand Grasp Orthosis based on Functional Electrical Stimulation," Presented at IEEE EMBC'10, Buenos Aires, Argentina, September 2010.
I'm quite a fan of the idea of disseminating any experience I've had (especially related to PhD-dom) through quick, clear, concise writing which maximizes information transfer. Forthcoming at http://heather.miller.am/blog :)
