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 in the Ferrar LIP and longterm temporal and chemical evolution of the active paleo-Pacific margin of Gondwana. My most recent and future research goals are focused on extracting paleoclimate records from volcanic glass that has been hydrated by environmental water at the Earth's surface.
