Naomi Miller has landed at PNNL after ten years as the principal of Naomi Miller Lighting Design in Troy, New York. She has too many years of experience working in different facets of the lighting industry, but still finds lighting to be an ever-advancing field with creative challenges. Over 30 architectural lighting design awards hang on her wall, for projects ranging from churches to university science buildings, boutique hotels, supermarkets, and parking lots. She chaired the Illuminating Engineering Society’s (IESNA) Quality of the Visual Environment committee for 8 years and was a principal member of the writing team for the IES's Light + Design: A Guide to Designing Quality Lighting for People and Buildings. She is a Fellow of the IESNA and Fellow of the IALD.
