Education
BSc, Imperial College, London, UK
Bio and Interests

Development of software, computing infrastructure and numerical algorithms for simulation of atmospheric, oceanic and geophysical flows. 

 

specializes in the application of large-scale computation to all aspects of understanding Earth and planetary systems. He is a founding developer of the M.I.T. General Circulation Model (MITgcm), a numerical simulation tool used for a wide range of basic science and applied studies in planetary fluid dynamics. Hill  also helped launch the Earth System Modeling Framework (ESMF), a major open standard for creating multicomponent models of Earth system processes. In both activities he has been active in developing prognostic model and model-data synthesis tools.
 
Among various projects, Hill co-leads the research, education and outreach committee of the Massachusetts Green High Performance Computing Center (MGHPCC). The MGHPCC is a multi-university enterprise in Massachusetts, dedicated to enhancing large-scale computing infrastructure in the area.specializes in the application of large-scale computation to all aspects of understanding Earth and planetary systems. He is a founding developer of the M.I.T.
