Jerry X. Mitrovica
Frank B. Baird, Jr., Professor of Science
I was born in Melbourne, Australia, and raised there and - after the age of 9 - in Toronto with my six siblings. Debates about politics, history and literature were far more common in our home than discussions of science, but my parents always allowed me to follow my curiosity, wherever that led. I was fortunate to be educated at wonderful public schools - Westwood Jr. High School and the University of Toronto, in particular - and to be guided by generous mentors and colleagues. I am passionate about all of the science we explore in the group, from sea level changes in our progressively warming world to ancient, critical events in Earth and human history, and my life outside academia is preoccupied by art, literature and rock music.
