Arthur G. Millers's research interests have been focused primarily on prejudice, stereotyping, and biases in social judgment. In 1979, he was awarded an NIMH senior post-doctoral fellowship to study with Ned Jones at Princeton University. In 1986, he authored a definitive volume concerning the impact of Stanley Milgram's controversial experimental studies of obedience. He is the editor of a recent issue of the Journal of Social Issues entitled "Perspectives on Obedience to Authority: The Legacy of the Milgram Experiments" (Barry Collins of UCLA is second editor on this issue). He has recently conducted a graduate seminar on the social psychology of health, and is currently pursuing research on biases in the processing of health-relevant information. He has published on the subject of college students' attitudes and behaviors toward suntanning, and has given several presentations to the media (print and radio interviews) concerning psychological factors relating to risk-taking in the context of sun-exposure.
