Bio

I am broadly interested in constraining the scientific understanding of island arc volcanoes using a multi-disciplinary approach. My PhD research focused on the petrology of rocks from volcanic centres of the Grenadines, Lesser Antilles where I used petrographical and geochemical analyses to assess the chemical evolution of magmas in the crust and explain the behaviour of active volcanoes. I am currently responsible for the overall management of the ground deformation program related to monitoring volcanic activity in the Eastern Caribbean.
