Milton Milaras worked for ~10 years as an environmental manager in the mining and construction sectors; both within industry, as a consultant, and for NGOs. In June 2015 he graduated with a MSc Geography from The University of Johannesburg, South Africa. Since 2014, he has designed and presented tertiary curricula, in both contact and distance learning contexts, from first year through to Masters levels (including courses in Physical Geography, Environmental Management, and Human Geography). His academic publications focus on sustainable mine closure, as well as geographic pedagogical research; while he has supervised students across varied environmental topics. As a young and emerging academic, he is passionate about education for emancipation in developing world contexts. As a result, in 2017 he registered for his PhD with The University of South Africa, which focuses on conceptualising an Africanised Soil Science curriculum. He also is instrumental in developing and running the annual South African National Geography Olympiad for high schools. His academic publications are available here:
