After graduating with a mechanical engineering degree from Princeton University, Miles worked in an imaging lab at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in the Institute of Biomedical Imaging & Bioengineering (NIBIB)

Miles developed methods using laser speckle contrast imaging (LSCI) and infrared (IR) imaging to characterize blood flow oscillations in sickle cell disease.

Research

Miles’ research seeks to improve the early identification of high risk infants using advanced structural and diffusion MR imaging of the preterm brain.
