I am fascinated by the nature of volatiles in magmatic and volcanic systems. This interest is linked to a range of topics including melt generation, magma transport and differentiation, and eruptive dynamics. My primary resource for exploring these fields is melt inclusions. These accidents of imperfect crystal growth provide us with the only means for directly examining pre-eruptive volatile content of magma. Furthermore, they form during various stages of magma ascent and differentiation, providing snapshots of the changing physicochemical conditions of a magma prior to its eruption. Reaching an understanding of the variation of volatiles, which is coupled to elemental and isotopic variations, in melt inclusions gives insight into dynamic processes that govern the behavior of magma before and during volcanic eruption. Recently, I have also gained an interest in the study of nominally anhydrous minerals. Such minerals can act as hygrometers, allowing for further understanding of the distribution of water in magmas.
