Research Interest


I'm interested in the fluid dynamics of lava, especially lava flows and lava lakes. I combine numerical modeling and analog laboratory experiments to investigate physical controls on lava dynamics. I'm particularly focused on multiphase lava rheology and coupled thermo-mechanical processes to help guide understanding of field observations. In addition, I'm passionate about science communication and education.
