The atmosphere in college is very friendly,
it's almost like a family.

Emeritus Professor of Theoretical Physics
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?
Unprecedented in the UK, Europe and the US, this yearly Graduate Summer School is a two-week intense international workshop that brings together all the skills (both linguistic and palaeographic) needed to access, decode and interpret Edo-period printed and handwritten materials.
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.
