Overview

My research aims to understand the behaviour and evolution of magmatic systems from the generation and diversification of melts at depth through to their eruption at the surface. I combine experiments and the study of natural examples to understand magma storage and assembly within the crust, and the transfer of melts, crystals and volatiles to and from the planet’s interior. I use a range of approaches in my research, including fieldwork, microscopy, geochemical analyses, computational modelling and high-pressure, high-temperature experiments.
