Personal profile

Research interests

My research interests cover a broad range of multiphase phenomena in the environmental sciences, specifically problems in volcanology and glaciology. Research on both topics is generally a mixture of laboratory experiments and analytical and numerical modelling.

Volcanological research has focused on multiphase flow and fragmentation processes during explosive volcanic eruptions, multiphase rheology, and the propagation of pyroclastic flows and turbidites.

Glaciological research centres on the microscopic water content in glacial ice and where impurities (soluble, insoluble, and microbial) are located with respect to that water. These problems affect the viability of microbial life in the ice, the record of past climates, and the flow response of large bodies of ice to changes in their thermal regimes.
