Robyn M. Millan

Academic Appointments

Margaret Anne and Edward Leede '49 Distinguished Professorship

Robyn Millan is an experimental physicist specializing in the processes acting on energetic particles in both the atmosphere and in space, and in developing new experimental methods for studying these processes. She has undergraduate degrees in Physics and Astronomy from U. C. Berkeley (1995) and a Ph. D. in Physics from U. C. Berkeley (2002). She came to Dartmouth College in 2002 as a NASA Spacegrant Visiting Young Scientist and joined the regular faculty in 2005.
