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 teaches classes in wave mechanics, hydrology and hydraulics, and applied nearshore modeling. Dr. Hill was the group coordinate for Coastal and Ocean Engineering from 2010-2012. Dr. Hill’s research portfolio includes numerous topics related to nearshore waters. Some recent examples include the linkages between tidal evolution and sea-level rise, the relationships between nearshore oceanographic conditions and biological and ecological processes, the role of coastal freshwater discharge in nearshore processes, and optical measurements of complex flow fields. His research has been supported over the years by the National Science Foundation, NOAA, the National Park Service, the North Pacific Research Board, the Oil Spill Research Institute, and the USGS.
