Mitchell McMillan

I’m a research geologist interested in the interactions among tectonics, lithology, and erosion that control the evolution of Earth’s surface. I investigate these relationships from many different angles, including geomorphology, geologic mapping, and geodynamic modelling. I recently received my PhD from the University of Toronto, and I currently work as a postdoc at Georgia Tech. Check my Google Scholar profile.

In 2016, I co-founded Cool Font (, a software development company. We are the creators of Mixel (, a cocktail recipe app that filters the recipes based on the ingredients you actually own. Mixel has about 17,000 currently active users, 416,000 total installs, and has been featured in the Apps We Love section of the App Store and in the May 2018 issue of Cosmopolitan magazine. It is available for iPhone and Android.
