Volcanology, Geochronology, Geochemistry
My research is primarily directed at understanding continental volcanic fields that host caldera-forming large-scale explosive eruptions. I am interested in understanding the evolution of the magma system at depth before, during, and after such large eruptions. This is done through a combination of major and trace element and isotopic geochemistry of rocks produced during these eruptions as well as isotopic dating to constrain timing of eruptions.
