Dr. Larry McKay is the Jones Professor of Hydrogeology and Chair of the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at the University of Tennessee (UT). This endowed position was created with a donation from Donald Jones (UT grad 1959) and his wife, Flo, to provide diverse opportunities for UT students in the growing fields of hydrogeology and environmental geology. Dr. McKay received a Bachelor’s degree (1981) in Geological Engineering from the University of British Columbia and a PhD (1992) in Earth Sciences from the Hydrogeology program at the University of Waterloo, both in Canada and carried out Post-doctoral research at the Geological Survey of Denmark in 1992.
