research overview

  • I am an earth scientist, geologist, volcanologist, geochemist, petrologist and geoarcheologist. My research and teaching concern how magmas and volcanoes are formed, how they evolve and reveal the chemistry of Earth's interior; the role of volcanism in the chemical evolution of Earth and other planets; the relations between volcanism and global tectonics; the role of magmatic activity in generation of ore deposits; hazards associated with volcanism; and the characteristics, sources and regional distribution of volcanic rocks found in archaeological sites.
