Dr. Mills was on the faculty of UW Otolaryngology from 1991-2010.

David Mills, M.S., Ph.D., M.A., received his B.S. in electrical engineering from UW and an M.S. in electrical engineering and Ph.D. in physics from Stanford University, plus a master's degree in psychology. When at Stanford and more recently as a professor at the University of Washington, he conducted government-sponsored research in different areas including electronics, physics, psychology, biology, neuroscience and biomedical research. He has over 100 peer-reviewed publications in professional journals reporting his research work in these fields, with the majority of his publications coming from work at the department on the development and function of the cochlear amplifier. Since retiring, he has written two books. The first summarizes his scientific study of our immediate future, and his second book is a science fiction novel using the scientific study as a background. He is enjoying retirement and has a condo on the beach just south of the border.
