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?
I came to Emmanuel in 1984 to read Mathematics, and have been here in various guises ever since.
Japan, books, prints, popular culture, unusual scripts and cats: these are the great passions of my life.
