Associate Professor Tim Miller is an academic in the School of Computing and Information Systems at The University of Melbourne. 

Tim 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 artificial intelligence, in particular human-agent interaction.
