I use the rocky products of volcanic eruptions to
processes that occur inside the earth. Everybody
volcanoes are dangerous and a looming hazard for much of the global
population. But these mouths sometimes speak of the deep
use the chemistry of lava to investigate how magma is made in the earth
and how it moves upwards to feed eruptions. I also study the links
between volcanism and processes that influence the earth's surface,
such as glaciation, hydrothermal activity, climate change
