Alumna Miller now a faculty member at Ole Miss

Dr. Stephanie Miller is an Assistant Professor of Psychology and the Director of the CUB Lab (Cognition Underlying Behavior) at the University of Mississippi.

Dr. Miller earned her PhD in developmental psychology at UNCG in 2012, under the direction of Dr. Stuart Marcovitch in the DUCK Lab (Development and Understanding of Children’s Knowledge). Her research interests center on how young children come to control their own thoughts and behavior, as well as the processes that underlie these abilities. She is also interested in the relation between cognitive control and social understanding in childhood.

In 2013, Dr. Miller was awarded the UNCG Outstanding Dissertation Award for her research on the relation between attention, language, and executive control in toddlers. The findings from this project are now in press at the prestigious journal Developmental Psychology. Her other work also appears in high quality outlets including the Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, Merrill-Palmer Quarterly, and the Journal of Applied Developmental Psychology.
