- Research Interests:
- Dr. Miller is interested in examining how knowledge affects cognition in later life, in particular, its effects on language processing, decision making and problem solving, as well as memory. She is also interested in how motivational factors among younger and older adults are related to knowledge in a particular area and how the two factors support cognition in later life. Dr. Miller applies this work to the problem of low health literacy, by examining how knowledge and motivation support adults' ability to obtain, process, and make decisions regarding their health.
