World Renowned Urban Expert To Become 16th President Of The University Of Toronto

Professor Gertler holds an Honours Bachelor of Arts from McMaster University, a master's degree in city planning from the University of California, Berkeley, and a PhD from Harvard University.

In May 2012, he was awarded an honorary doctor of philosophy from Lund University, Sweden for his exceptional contributions to the fields of economic geography and regional development. In the same year, he was made an Academician of the Academy of Social Sciences (UK).

Internationally renowned as a distinguished academic, Professor Gertler's research focuses on the geography of innovative activity and the economies of city-regions. He has been a frequent advisor to government agencies at all levels, both in Canada and abroad, as well as to multilateral organizations such as the European Union and the OECD.  His research has attracted $8.4 million in external funding.

He has held visiting appointments at Oxford University, University College London, UCLA, and the University of Oslo. He won the 2007 Award for Scholarly Distinction from the Canadian Association of Geographers.

Professor Gertler was also a member of the Expert Panel on Business Innovation established by the Council of Canadian Academies, which published its landmark report "Innovation and Business Strategy: Why Canada Falls Short" to wide acclaim in 2009.
