Summary

My research focuses on understading types, mechanisms and timescale of pre- and syn-eruptive magmatic processes at active volcanoes in order to inform volcanic hazard assessment. I use the rocks erupted during volcanic eruptions to understand the hidden processes inside the volcano, as a psychologist explores the human interior. I mostly focus on active highly explosive volcanoes in subduction zones, time-scales of magmatic processes and pre-eruptive magma degassing conditions. I am also interested in lithosphere evolution and relationships between magmatism and tectonics. I approach these problems using micro-analytical techniques and geochemical and isotope analyses.
