Dr. Jeremy Miller

Dr. Jeremy Miller was educated at King’s College University of London. He holds a Ph.D in High-Energy Physics from Tel-Aviv. Currently Jeremy studies towards a Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics at the University of Southampton. His research is focused on gravitational wave modelling through solving Einstein’s equations at second-order, in black hole perturbation theory. Jeremy joined IMBM in September 2016. His research is the biomathematical modelling of prostate cancer, centered on the prediction of the time to biochemical failure for patients undergoing androgen depravation therapy.

Ph.D Physics, Tel Aviv University 2005 – 2009

Jeremy completed his Ph.D. in 2009 in high energy physics at Tel Aviv University. His research was under the supervision of Professor G. Levin and was focused on the detection of the Higgs Boson particle. One of his major research achievements was the first analytical calculation of the survival probability in the QCD approach, an important quantity in diffractive Higgs production at the large hadron collider (LHC) at CERN (see publication 11 below). In addition Jeremy contributed to the first summation of Feynman loop-diagrams in QCD, an ingredient key to the calculation of the proton-proton scattering amplitude in QCD.

Post-Doctorate, Instituto Superio Tecnico (IST), Lisbon 2009 – 2012

Later Jeremy was a post-doctorate fellow at the Instituto Superio Tecnico (IST) in Lisbon. Here Jeremy completed his calculation of the proton-proton scattering amplitude in QCD, using the Schwinger-Dyson equation (publication 6). He also contributed to the calculation of the amplitude for deep inelastic scattering in N=4 Super Yang-Mills theory.

Ph.D. Mathematics, University of Southampton 2013- 2016

Later on Jeremy began Ph.D. in 2013 in General Relativity. His research is centered on calculating the second-order self-force, which is key for being able to accurately model gravitational waves emitted from extreme-mass-ratio-inspirals (EMRIs), the inspiral of a solar-mass object into a massive black hole. His research achievements include solving the Einstein equation to first-order in black hole perturbation theory, and the construction of a model for solving them at second order.

IMBM Work Program for 2016-17

Jeremy is currently a member of IMBM where his research is directed towards the predicting the time of biochemical failure (BF) in patients with prostate cancer. He is focused on developing a mathematical model for levels of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) in patients in the hormone sensitive phase of prostate cancer. The goal is to refine the model to reflect the biological process more accurately and solve of the system of equations to provide an accurate prediction for the time of BF.
