Val Troll graduated from St Andrews University, Scotland in 1998 and received his PhD from the GEOMAR Research Centre, University of Kiel, Germany, in 2001. Troll then lectured in volcanolology and petrology at Trinity College Dublin (2001-2008), during which time he habilitated at the Blaise Pascal University Clermont-Ferrand, France, in 2006. In 2008, he took up the Chair of Petrology at Uppsala University, Sweden, which he currently holds.
