Research summary

I am a physical volcanologist with broad interest in environmental hazard, risk and resilience. My physical science background is in fluid dynamics and volcanic processes, including fundamental processes of explosive volcanic eruptions, and multiphase environmental flows including volcanic ash transport, and dynamics of suspensions and granular flows. My main career focus has been the prediction of volcanic hazards and their impacts, including volcanic ash transport, lahars and landslides, volcanic gases and crater lakes. I now work across disciplines to integrate hazard assessment with social and physical vulnerability, risk management structures and community engagement, with social scientists, engineers, mathematicians and statisticians ...
