How could Miles, an architecture professor, be an expert on dream sharing?

He is Mal's father and it is hinted that he might be helping Mal and Cobb in an early stage of a project most probably providing them with ways to design other people dreams. Adriadne is an architect in real life so it might be that the best dream designers are in fact architects, who after all alter our cities, houses etc.
Also, when Cobb asks Miles if he knew someone with skills that could match his own, Miles replies that he knows someone better which suggests, that he is in fact familiar with Cobb abilities do design dreams.
