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.

Some collaborator webpages
:

- Julia Hammer (Univ. Hawaii) runs the experimental lab I work in, among other things, she investigates crystallization processes in magmas.

- Jessica Larsen (Univ. Alaska Fairbanks) has another experimental lab and investigates both degassing and crystallization of magmas.

- Thomas Giachetti (University of Oregon) among other topics, examines magma degassing and volcanic glass rehydration using a wide range of textural and analytical tools

- Eric Hellebrand (Univ. Hawaii) manages the electron microprobe and XRF facilities. Works on various topics from melting in the mantle to crystallization in the oceanic crust.

- Helge Gonnermann (Rice University) works on fluid mechanics, volatile exsolution among many other topics.
