Piotr Mitros

 

 


 

As Chief Scientist at edX and its technical co-founder, Piotr Mitros is charged with developing and applying technology to optimize the learning process. As a graduate student, Mitros took breaks from his thesis to spend time teaching in China, working in India, and facilitating educational technology projects in Nigeria, as well as developing experimental educational formats at MIT. His observations of university systems around the world inspired Mitros to find innovative ways to dramatically increase both the quality of and access to education. Following a stint in industry designing the analog front end for a novel medical imaging modality at Rhythmia Medical, Mitros returned to MIT to lead the creation of the original MITx platform and help lead the creation of its pedagogy. He brings a broad interdisciplinary background that combines teaching, engineering, computer science, and math, and has been interested in teaching and education since he was a child. Mitros enjoys making things -- curtains, bicycle parts, electronics, furniture, and speakers. Mitros holds a B.S. degrees in Math and Electrical Engineering, a Masters of Engineering in EECS, and a Ph.D. in EECS, all from MIT.
