Dr. Connell Miller is currently a full-time “Wind Impacts Researcher” for the Northern Tornadoes Project at Western University. Through his academic work, and his placements at various engineering firms, he has developed a strong background in research engineering, forensic engineering, full-scale testing and instrumentation.
At present, he is leading the remote sensing team at the Northern Tornadoes Project through the development and implementation of drone imagery to map the path of tornadoes. He is also conducting research into using remote sensing of low-level vegetation damage to classify the strength of a tornado. Finally, he is using the research conducted during his PhD studies to codify wind loads on common types of cladding systems.
