Dr. James Mungall received his BSc in Geology from the University of Waterloo in 1987. He did his MSc and PhD in igneous petrology at McGill University, finishing in 1993. He did two years of postdoctoral research at the Bayerisches Geoinstitut followed by nearly three years of consulting in Quebec before joining the University of Toronto in 1999. He has worked as a consultant specializing in magmatic sulfide and chromite deposits since 1996 and spent one year as a Chief Geologist for Noront Resources during the discovery and definition of their Ring of Fire deposit group. In 2017, he joined Carleton University, where he now teaches mineral deposits. His research topics range from transport properties and thermodynamics of magmas to description and interpretation of mineral deposits.
