John Millis, Ph.D., is an assistant professor of physics and astronomy at Anderson University, in Anderson Indiana. He teaches a wide variety of courses while maintaining an active research program in high energy astrophysics.
John has taught physics and astronomy at the collegiate level since 2001. His research focus is on pulsars, pulsar wind nebulae, and supernova remnants. Using the VERITAS gamma-ray observatory in southern Arizona, he studies the very high energy radiation from these dynamic sources to extract information about their formation and emission mechanisms.
Dr. Millis received his bachelor of science in physics, with a mathematics minor from Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana. He remained at Purdue for the completion of his Doctor of Philosophy degree, where he focused on High Energy Astrophysics.
From John P. Millis, Ph.D:
For thousands of years man has been intrigued by the heavens. But, as life has taken more and more people into cities, where the sky is obscured by bright lights, we are losing our connection to the beauty of creation. My passion is to help people realize the grandeur of the Universe in which we live.
