Areas of expertise My research focuses on the fluid dynamics of volcanological processes and hazardous volcanic and natural flows. Using the techniques of laboratory analogue simulation and, latterly, theoretical and computational modeling, I have investigated the dynamics of gravity currents as models for pyroclastic flows and turbidity currents, high speed two-phase conduit flows and volcanic plumes. I have applied similar methodology to problems in natural ventilation and granular flow.

My current research includes the dynamics of bubbly magmatic flows with applications to magma chamber dynamics, shallow magmatic plumbing systems and conduit convection in persistently-active volcanism.
