Key Areas of Interest: Igneous Petrology, Volcanology, Terroir

Teaching Areas: Igneous and Metamorphic Petrology, Volcanology, Advanced Igneous Petrology, Terroir, Freshman Seminar (Why Do Volcanoes Erupt?)

Research Interests: My main fields of research are igneous petrology, volcanology, and terroir. At the mo- ment, I am focused on four main broad research projects: the origin of arc magmas, the explosive behavior of silicic lava domes, the formation of subglacial volcanoes, and the unique terroir of volcanic soils.
