Volcanoes National Park, Hawai'i, USA

Welcome!

I am a geoscientist with a background in both chemistry and geology. I study how small changes in the chemical make-up of rocks can change their physical properties. Right now, I examine how the uppermost part of Earth’s mantle deforms, and how this affects plate tectonics.

Currently, I am a National Science Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow, working in the Rock Rheology Laboratory at the University of Oxford with Professor Lars Hansen.
