NEWS (12/28/2016): I've recently learned that I will have the honor of receiving the 2017 Early Career Award from GSA's Mineralogy Geochemistry Petrology Volcanology division (MGPV). Thanks to Mike Garcia for the nomination and to the MGPV committee and Wendy Bohrson for the surprise announcement.

Magmas and Volcanoes Research

I investigate processes that occur at and underneath volcanoes. Through combinations of field campaigns, chemical analyses, textural characterization of crystals/vesicles, laboratory experiments, and analogue models, I aim to understand the origin of magmas, their modification en-route to the surface and the physical processes that are responsible for construction and destruction of volcanic edifices.
