Dr Tim Miller is a senior lecturer (equivalent to assistant professor) in the Department of Computing and Information Systems at The University of Melbourne. 

Dr Miller received his PhD in 2005 from the University of Queensland. He spent four years at the University of Liverpool, UK, as a software engineer and postdoctoral researcher associate in the Agent ART group. In 2008, he moved to Melbourne to take up his current post. Tim's primary interest lies in the area of software engineering for intelligent systems, especially multi-agent systems, and modelling and simulation using intelligent agents. For recognition of his hard work in successfully implementing problem-based learning in much of his teaching, In 2011, Tim received an Excellence in Teaching award from the Melbourne School of Engineering, which complemented his Excellence in Teaching awards from the Department of Computer Science and Software Engineering in 2009 and 2011.
