Dr Peter Miller is a Senior Earth Observation Scientist at PML. He leads a team of Earth Observation scientists, developing and applying innovations in automated analysis of sea-surface biological and physical processes using satellite data.

Peter's research foci are linkages between ocean fronts and megafauna, and discriminating algal blooms; and he applies these towards marine conservation policy and the fish-farming industry.

He leads PML’s involvement in EC MEDINA, NERC FASTNEt and EC AQUA-USERS. He also leads technical development for the NERC Earth Observation Data Acquisition and Analysis Service (NEODAAS) Plymouth. He has written 50 peer reviewed research papers.
