Denise Hills

Director, Energy Investigations, Geological Survey of Alabama
Tuscaloosa, AL
I am a research geologist and geophysicist, with interests in petroleum reservoir characterization for reserve estimates as well as carbon sequestration and enhanced recovery projects. Projects also include alternative energy investigations, such as enhanced geothermal systems. I have an interest in data curation and preservation, with a focus on preserving legacy data (particularly physical samples) in the digital age. One of my goals is to be a science communicator and ambassador, encouraging the public to engage with scientific inquiry.
