I am interested in the processes that shape our planet. In particular those that involve fluid flow or fluid-like behavior, with most of my work focused on volcanic and magmatic processes.

  1. Volatiles in magma: bubble growth, coalescence, fragmentation
  2. Triggering and dynamics of volcanic eruptions
  3. Magma flow in volcanic conduits: controls on eruption styles
  4. Volcano deformation
  5. Magma chambers
  6. Fluid flow in porous materials
  7. Thermal and thermochemical convection
