Direc­tor, Coastal Ob­serv­ing Re­search and De­vel­op­ment Cen­ter, Scripps In­sti­tu­tion of Oceanog­ra­phy, Uni­ver­sity of Cal­i­for­nia San Diego

Dr. Terrill is an oceanog­ra­pher with 25 years of ex­pe­ri­ence lead­ing ba­sic and ap­plied re­search pro­grams around the globe. In 2003, he es­tab­lished a R&D Cen­ter within the Ma­rine Phys­i­cal Lab­o­ra­tory at Scripps to rapidly field new tech­nolo­gies and con­duct ex­ploratory and ex­pe­di­tionary re­search. Scripps Ma­rine Phys­i­cal Lab­o­ra­tory is one of the four orig­i­nal Navy-Uni­ver­sity Ap­plied Re­search Lab­o­ra­to­ries es­tab­lished in World War II. Staffed by en­gi­neers, data an­a­lysts, and ocean sci­en­tists, Dr. Terrill’s Cen­ter serves as an in­ter­face be­tween the re­search en­ter­prise; tech­nol­ogy de­vel­op­ment; and op­er­a­tional ap­pli­ca­tions of sci­ence and tech­nol­ogy. In ad­di­tion, Dr. Terrill has ex­ten­sive ex­pe­ri­ence work­ing with in­dus­try to de­velop, im­prove, and eval­u­ate new ocean tech­nolo­gies and un­manned plat­forms. Dr. Terrill has a B.S. (magna cum laude) de­gree in Ap­plied Me­chan­ics and En­gi­neer­ing sciences from the Uni­ver­sity of Cal­i­for­nia, San Diego and a Ph.D. in Phys­i­cal Oceanog­ra­phy-Ap­plied Ocean Sciences from Scripps In­sti­tu­tion of Oceanog­ra­phy funded by DOD fel­low­ships. Early in his ca­reer he was se­lected to re­ceive a 3 year ONR Young In­ves­ti­ga­tor Fel­low­ship to rec­og­nize his naval-rel­e­vant re­search. In ad­di­tion, Dr. Terrill has served on tran­si­tion and govern­ment re­view teams for the Navy, Fed­eral Ad­vi­sory com­mit­tees for NOAA; and, has twice pro­vided con­gres­sional tes­ti­mony on mat­ters as­so­ci­ated with emerg­ing ocean tech­nolo­gies for mar­itime do­main aware­ness. He is co-founder of Project Re­cover , a pri­vate-pub­lic col­lab­o­ra­tive which con­ducts global searches us­ing un­manned underwater ve­hi­cles and pre­mis­sion his­tor­i­cal anal­y­sis to lo­cate WWII-era air­craft crash sites for re­port­ing to the De­fense POW/ MIA Ac­count­ing Agency. He is an avid diver with 32 years of div­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.
