After graduating from Oxford in 1964, I joined the research group of Luis Alvarez at the University of California, Berkeley, where I obtained a Ph.D. in experimental particle physics in 1969.
Japan, books, prints, popular culture, unusual scripts and cats: these are the great passions of my life.
I have been interested in volcanoes for well over 30 years. My research group, in the Department of Earth Sciences, studies magmatic processes. We want to answer simple questions. How is magma generated? How does it move towards the surface? Where is it stored before volcanic eruptions? What is the relationship between magmatism and environmental change?
