Research summary

I am a Physical Volcanologist with research interests in the fluid dynamics of geological and volcanic two-phase flows, and a particular focus on developing predictive models for volcanic hazard. I use laboratory experiments and theoretical models to investigate the dynamics of volcanic processes and flows, including explosive volcanic eruptions, volcanic plumes and ash dispersal, pyroclastic flows and lahars (volcanic mudflows), and volcanic degassing. I am interested in combining field observations and theory to develop new volcano monitoring tools, and also undertake fundamental research into granular flow and landslide dynamics.

My current major research projects include investigation of the dynamics of ...
