Joseph Miller

Joe Miller’s interest in structural engineering and timber framing began when he and his father rebuilt an ancestral barn in southern Indiana. His research focuses on key laminated beams and the strength of wooden dowels, and his findings have significantly advanced the acceptance of timber frame construction among engineers and code officials.

He is a partner with Fire Tower Engineered Timber, where he applies his experiences and interests in structural analysis and timber design to projects throughout North America. He is a licensed professional engineer in several states and provinces and participates in a number of trade and professional groups.

Joe received a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, a master’s degree in civil engineering from the University of Wyoming, and a doctorate in philosophy of civil engineering from Michigan Technological University.
