Taronish Pithawala was born and raised in Toronto. He attended the University of Toronto where he earned his M.Sc. in Planetary Science studying Mars’ core-mantle composition using viscoelastic models of tidal forcing. Taronish’s interest in mineral exploration sparked during a summer-student position where he worked in Canada’s arctic collecting magnetic field measurements and mapping surface geology. Since then Taronish has travelled around the world to work with geologists, geochemists, and geophysicists in an exploration context, and in his various roles at Geosoft Inc. Lately, Taronish has been focussed on helping geoscientists integrate techniques, like geophysical inversion and geological modelling, into a complete workflow in order to better understand the subsurface.
