Kenneth Miller is an assistant professor of political science with expertise in elections, pollling, campaign finance, and political communication. His teaching and research at UNLV focuses on how money affects American political campaigns and what happens in Congress.
Miller's past work has investigated how the sources of funds affect the content of campaign messages, the behavior of legislators, and the balance of power within party networks. He has also conducted research on the downstream effects of political communication — studying how images used in campaign advertisements affect perception of candidates' positions, and how the presentation of news affects how individuals choose which stories to read.
Prior to UNLV, Miller worked as a post-doctoral research associate at the Woodrow Wilson School of Public & International Affairs at Princeton University, and as a visiting assistant professor of political science at the State University of New York at Geneseo. Before his academic career, he worked in political polling and consumer market research. His work has appeared or is forthcoming in The Journal of Politics, Politics and Religion, Social Science Quarterly, and The Forum.
