I am interested in volcanic remote sensing and volcanic monitoring.

I use ArcGIS analysis and photogrammetry techniques to qualitatively and quantitatively describe the behavior of the pyroclastic flow from the 1980 Mount St. Helens eruption. I aim to provide a way to characterize eruptions using aerial photography due to the hazardous nature of field work on active volcanoes.
