Biography

Dr. Janeen Hill is a Professor and Dean of Schmid College of Science and Technology at Chapman University.  She has been in this role since 2012 with her tenure at Chapman beginning in 2006.  She held the Associate Dean title at Wilkinson College, Letters and Science and began her researching and teaching career at UC Davis.  Dr. Hill’s areas of interest focus on afferent inputs from skeletal muscle to the spinal cord that evoke cardiovascular changes.  She has also studied effective counterirritants to pain of DOMS.
