Research interests

I am an experimental petrologist and geochemist, and I am working on various metamorphic and igneous processes that occur in subduction zone environments. I mainly use a combination of high-pressure experimental equipment and thermodynamic models for my research.

Within subduction zones, I have two main interests: (a) the metamorphic evolution and partial melting of the subducted slabs and its consequences for the trace element and volatile budget (b) the interaction of slab fluids with mantle wedge peridotites upon their ascent. Most of my work is designed to be directly applicable to arc lavas that have erupted in the Lesser Antilles.
