Research interests

Using a combination of igneous petrology, high pressure and temperature experiments and field geology, my research focuses on understanding magma processes beneath volcanoes at subduction zones.

Comparison of geochemical data from experiments with data from natural rocks can help elucidate processes such as magma mixing, crystallisation and crustal assimilation occurring in magmas prior to eruption.

I have mainly worked on active volcanoes in the USA (Mount St. Helens), Bolivia (Uturuncu), Colombia (Machin) and Indonesia (Sinabung, Marapi, Sekincau, Kelut).
