Specialisms

Hazard Communication, Igneous Petrology & Geochemistry, Isotope Geochemistry, Mineralogy, Petrography, Volcanology

Summary

Mineralogist by training, but inescapably drawn to molten rock, I am interested in the transition from effusive to explosive volcanic eruptions. How do volcanic plumbing systems work, and how do they change over time? Which processes drive a volcanic system to a cataclysmic eruption? And, most crucially, how fast does that happen? To find answers to these questions, I study zoned crystals in volcanic rocks: Their compositions and heterogeneities are a window into the evolution of their host magmas, and high-resolution imaging and analytical techniques make it possible to reconstruct these stories. Compositional and textural studies reveal magmatic conditions and processes, and using diffusion modelling, timescales for such pre-eruptive processes can be established. Working on active volcanoes, implications of these findings transcend pure science as they need to be communicated appropriately to both public officials and local communities. I am engaged in volcanic hazard education both on-site and in the UK, and constantly exploring new ways of hazard communication.
