PRECEPT: NOT YOUR FATHER'S PLASMA PHYSICS LABS: PAST, PRESENT, FUTURE OF FUSION ENERGY - APRIL 7, 2021
The Princeton Club of Chicago invites you to join Matt Miller *74 S70 as he shares his work with the Princeton Plasma Physics Labs, the exciting potential of fusion for our future energy needs, and Princeton's ongoing and significant role in international fusion research.
Following a diverse career in high tech and venture capital, Matt has focused on fusion and its potential to deliver inherently safe zero carbon energy at scale, to power a growing global industrial economy, soon enough to impact climate. He co-founded the Stellar Energy Foundation in 2016 and has an ongoing management consulting relationship with the Princeton Labs. For useful background information about fusion and recordings of Stellar's January Webinar "Energy, Environment, Innovation: Fusion's Promise for Our Climate," please visit www.stellarenergyfoundation.org.

Matt has worked in the technology industry for more than forty years. He has been a bench-scientist, high tech project manager, large company CTO, and serial technology entrepreneur and CEO. He has contributed to numerous fields including space-based instrumentation, atmospheric photo-chemistry, semiconductor devices, and digital communications. He played a major role in the development, standardization, and practical deployment of US HDTV and high-speed cable modems.
Miller has also consulted extensively to both the private equity and venture capital communities and has served on numerous boards of directors of public and private companies in addition to having served on investor advisory boards.
From 2014 – 2018, he was the President of the Connecticut STEM Foundation, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation whose mission is to foster interest among high school students in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). He is President and co-founder of the Stellar Energy Foundation, Inc., a New Jersey 501(c)(3) with the mission of bringing fusion energy to the zero-carbon power portfolio soon enough to make an impact on climate change.
Miller holds a bachelor’s degree in physics from Harvard University and a Ph.D. in physics from Princeton University.
