While active in research for many years, Dr Hill's true passion is education.  For over 25 years, he has taught biology both formally (in school and university classrooms) and informally.  His objective as an educator is to assist learners in understanding topics which they thought were not understandable.  He is a sought-after adviser, with a quirky sense of humor.  When he is not with students, he can be found working behind the scenes in administration.

In his free time, Dr Hill enjoys movies and music, researches his familily's genealogy, studies US railroad history, and is an amateur radio enthusiast and emergency services volunteer.  He is a big fan of the Boston Red Sox.
