Research Interests

My research focuses on understanding the role of volatiles (noble gases and major volatiles) in magmatic systems. In particular, I am interested in determining how they are recycled from the Earth's surface back into the mantle, as well as identifying how they can be used as geochemical tracers of various sources (i.e. crust, mantle, sediments, plume) and processes (i.e., degassing, contamination, mixing). I have studied magmatic volatiles from the interior of the Earth in various different types of media including: 1) hydrothermal vent fluids in submarine environments, 2) basaltic glasses - lavas rapidly quenched as they erupt onto the seafloor, 3) fumaroles gases emitted from the craters of active volcanoes, 4) thermal springs, 5) geothermal wells on the flanks of volcanoes and 6) melt inclusions in mineral phases.
