Ann Neville Miller is a Professor in the Nicholson School of Communication at the University of Central Florida.
She has published over 60 peer-reviewed journal articles, one edited volume, and numerous book chapters. Much of her work addresses critical issues concerning communication about HIV in sub-Saharan Africa, including communication of religious leaders and churches toward HIV prevention in Africa, and the role of sexual content in African entertainment media in youth sexual attitudes and behavior. She also has a long-running research interest in barriers to research productivity of African communication scholars. Dr. Miller’s study of African communication patterns arises out of over a dozen years of living, studying, teaching, and researching as an American in Kenya and Uganda. She continues to work closely with former colleagues there on a range of projects.
Dr. Miller was the receipt of a Fulbright African Regional Research Grant in 2015 and a Fulbright Specialist grant in 2017, and has served as a consultant to the World Health Organization.
