Welcome to my website! I am a igneous petrologist and volcanologist at Teesside University, specialising in the interpretation of pre-eruptive magmatic evolution using geochemical analyses of erupted products. I have worked all over the world, studying super-eruptive processes in the Bishop Tuff, ocean island volcanism at Ascension Island, and subduction zones processes in the SVZ of Chile.
I am currently PI for a NERC Urgency grant entitled “La Palma 2021: Petrological insights into magmatic evolution in an ongoing volcanic crisis”, and have recently concluded a NERC Global Partnerships Seedcorn Fund entitled “MagmaStress: Quantifying the effect of crustal stress states on the style and timing of magmatism in the Southern Volcanic Zone, Chile”.
