Other Information: 

Dr. David Hill joined the Coastal and Ocean Engineering program at Oregon State in 2010 after 10 years as faculty at Penn State University. He is also a National Geographic Explorer. He teaches classes in hydrology, hydraulics, numerical methods, and applied environmental modeling. Dr. Hill's research portfolio includes numerous topics related to the motion of water through the landscape and into nearshore waters. He co-leads the Community Snow Observations project, funded by NASA, which assimilates data from winter backcountry users into models of snow distribution and evolution. He also leads numerous projects funded by NPRB, which seek to improve understanding of snow and freshwater resources in the coastal mountains of Alaska. Finally, he has led numerous projects investigating coastal water levels and flooding in the Pacific Northwest. Visit his research group’s website for more information of past and current projects and interests.
