Professor Miller's principal areas of research are broadly classified as Graph Theory and Data Security. In Graph Theory she has made considerable advances in the fields of Graph Labellings, Graph Algorithms and Graph Applications. Her work on Extremal Graph Theory has won her international renown. In this difficult and complex area working on fundamental properties of graphs she has published many deep results, even giving her name to a class of graphs, the McKay, Miller, Siran Graphs. With Prof Jozef Siran she is author of the much cited Moore Bound and Beyond: A Dynamic Survey of the Degree, Diameter Problem. She is currently writing a book on Graph Labelling. Professor Miller's other area of research is Data Security, especially in the Security of Statistical Databases.
