Paul W. Miller (decd)

Research Fellow

Curtin University

It is with great sadness that we report the death of Paul W. Miller on Wednesday, November 27, 2013 in Perth, Australia, after a long illness.

Paul Miller has been an IZA Research Fellow since March 2004. He was a prolific author and co-author of papers in Labor Economics and the Economics of Education, and received numerous awards for his research. He co-authored 38 IZA Discussion Papers and, measured by paper downloads, was among the top one percent of IZA DP authors.

Paul Miller received his PhD in Economics from the Australian National University in 1982. Most of his academic career was spent at the University of Western Australia, although in 2010 he moved to Curtin University, also in Perth. He also had visiting appointments at universities in Australia, the US, Canada and England.

Although Paul's presence will be sorely missed, we shall all continue to benefit from his work.
