I study Volcanology and Igneous Petrology. My primary research interests are explosive volcanic eruptions and igneous petrogenesis in long-lived volcanic provinces.

Current Research Projects

Mechanics of sintering and welding and their timescales in different volcanic regimes

Thermal evolution of the pyroclastic density currents from the Crater Lake culminating eruption

Past Research Projects
