Who am I?
I am a Professor in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at UC Davis. Most of my research focuses around understanding what is happening in the reservoir systems beneath volcanoes - how magmas evolve and interact with each other and with their surroundings. My particular focus is on connecting the records of chemical changes contained within volcanic crystals to their ages in order to understand the time scales and conditions of magmatic processes. Take a look at my research page for more information about current and recent projects.
I also teach courses ranging from Volcanoes for non-majors to graduate courses in U-series geochemistry. For more information see my teaching page.
