Curriculum Vitae / Resumé

David S. Miller
Auckland, New Zealand

Objectives

To promote the study and application of science among youth.

Current Projects

I am developing a theory of gravity and a fundamental particle model that may be applicable at all scales. The theory explains how wave-particle duality arises necessarily from every observation. The theory is based on a singular physical insight that is as profound today as Nicolaus Copernicus’s heliocentric model was in 1543.
I am preparing and presenting a series of talks to students, on Science and the Wider World.
I am promoting the establishment of a Science Discovery Center in Auckland.
I am promoting the establishment of a local community web site to facilitate community self-governance.

Background

25 years engineering experience. Emphasis in embedded systems, digital communications systems design. Expert knowledge of terrestrial and space-based wireless digital communications systems.
