 Research interests

  • The effects of primary melt variability on basalt phase equilibria using experimental petrology 
  • Thermobarometer calibration for estimating magma storage depths in mafic and felsic systems 
  • Magma storage conditions prior to the 2014-2015 Holuhraun eruption, Iceland
  • Primitive melt heterogeneity recorded in the trace element composition of Icelandic olivines 
  • Timescales of crystal mush entrainment prior to eruptions in the Eastern Volcanic Zone of Iceland 
  • Melt inclusion records of magmatic volatile behaviour (current focus on plagioclase-hosted inclusions) 
  • Magma mixing and crystal transfer in peralkaline systems 
  • Eruption dynamics of peralkaline rhyolites
