Evan Hill

Evan Hill (he/him) is a current Master's student in Ecosystem Science and Management at the University of Michigan's School for Environment and Sustainability. With a focus in Great Lakes Fish Ecology, Evan’s career journey is characterized by a dual passion: uncovering growth patterns and ecological dynamics of non-game and underrepresented fish species, while also striving to conserve aquatic ecosystems for future generations. Evan's Master’s thesis looks to validate museum specimens as accurate proxies for reconstructing historical freshwater fish growth. During his undergraduate studies, Evan pursued a double major in Biology and Environmental Science, with a minor in Geology at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. There, he investigated the ecology of Late Ordovician Cephalopods and their role in food web structure and analyzed stability and resistance mechanisms to predict modern Arctic marine invasions. As a current intern for the Institute for Fisheries Research with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, Evan has contributed to various fishery monitoring and assessment projects. He has been involved in the USGS Great Lakes Science Center Coregonine Science Program and the St. Clair-Detroit River Sturgeon for Tomorrow non-profit. His responsibilities have included conducting state-wide inland lake Status and Trend Monitoring Surveys, working as a Wolf Lake State Fish Hatchery Technician, and volunteering for the F&W Freshwater Mussel Relocation Program. In his free time, Evan enjoys swimming, playing tennis, tending to houseplants, visiting museums and botanical gardens, and cooking for friends and family.
