Her work focuses on investigating the surface abundance of these stars and the binary populations of intermediate aged open clusters, primarily NGC 2506, NGC 6819, and NGC 7789. Milliman holds an M.S. in Astronomy from UW–Madison (2011). She graduated from the University of Florida in 2009 with a B.S. in Astronomy and a B.A. in Physics.
