Tim Miller is an evolutionary ecologist with research interests in pollination biology and phenotypic plasticity. Originally from Pennsylvania, he earned a BA at Colby College in Maine and a PhD at UC Santa Cruz. Tim fell in love with California at first sight, and he spends much of his free time exploring the state. An avid all-around naturalist, you are most likely to encounter him staring high into trees through binoculars, flipping over logs on a rainy night, or hunched over an unusual plant with a magnifying lens.
