David A. Miller has joined the mechanical and industrial engineering department in the College of Engineering at Montana State University. Miller, an assistant professor in mechanical engineering, spent seven years with the Los Alamos National Laboratory prior to coming to MSU. He earned a doctorate in aerospace engineering from Texas A&M University in 1999.

For more than 10 years, Miller has conducted research related to the mechanical behavior of materials under applied loads. One such material has been nickel-titanium, a shape memory alloy (SMA). Many industries, such as medicine and aerospace, use SMAs due to their unique capability to return to their original shape after being deformed, and to create large forces in the process. Products as varied as eyeglass frames, medical stents, and pipe joints contain SMAs.
