I am an assistant professor of Volcanology/Igneous Petrology in the NMSU Department of Geological Sciences. My research interests focus on how and where magmas evolve, from their mantle origins to explosive eruptions. My past research includes: an investigation of cinder cone plumbing systems and the differentiation and degassing of their magmas over time; storage, evolution, and gas fluxes of voluminous rhyolitic magmas in New Zealand; and subduction recycling as recorded by arc basalts in Mexico and the Cascade arc.
Please check out my Research, Teaching, and Publications pages and contact me if you have any questions about my research!
*I am looking for a graduate student for the Fall of 2018 (to work on one of several possible projects); please contact me if you are interested!*
