Research Interest


My research is a blend of theoretical, applied and expedition-based science. The goals are (1) To interpret surface observations on volcanoes — and particularly measurements of gas emissions — to understand the unseen magmatic processes happening at depth and enhance our capacity to forecast future volcanic activity and (2) To understand the transfer of volatile elements from the mantle to the surface via magma ascent and degassing and better quantify volatile cycling at the planetary scale.
