Principal Research Engineer, Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences
Chris Hill is a principal research engineer in the Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences at MIT. Hill specializes in Earth and planetary computational science, with a focus on applying large-scale computation to oceanography and climate. His work has included multi-physics, multi-scale models of fluid problems that have relevance to improved modeling of flows in inhomogeneous porous media. Hill co-leads the research, education, and outreach committee of the Massachusetts Green High Performance Computing Center (MGHPCC).
