My PhD research integrates a variety of analytical techniques to investigate detailed volcanologic processes and large-scale crustal evolution recorded in magmatic arcs. In particular, I'm interested in the role of crustal melting and water-rock interaction in the generation of volcanic glasses from Antarctica, and the longterm temporal and chemical evolution of the active paleo-Pacific margin of Gondwana.
