Research Interests

Geological and environmental fluid mechanics: experimental and theoretical studies in fluid mechanics, and their application to the earth (particularly to magma flow and emplacement).

Physical processes of interest include: thermal, compositional and multi-component convection; melting, dissolving and crystallization; porous media flow; turbulent plumes and fountains; convective mixing; and sedimentation.

Lava Flows: Field Observations and Laboratory Experiments.
