I am interested in interactions between volcanic and tectonic processes. As a Postdoctoral Research Associate at Syracuse University, my current work combines classical field geology, remote sensing, gas geochemistry, and seismic reflection methods to understand local and regional-scale deformation processes at volcano-tectonic systems. Recent and ongoing studies focus on active continental rifting in East Africa, magma emplacement in large igneous provinces, silicic arc volcanism in New Zealand, and monogenetic volcanic fields in the continental US. Mainly, I enjoy working in any geological setting that contains a fault, dike, fracture or volcano – preferably all of the above.
