Research Interests

  • Physical volcanology
  • Natural hazards
  • Remote sensing
  • Geomorphology

I am interested in how active geological processes affect society and modify landscapes, and I like to be involved in projects that are meaningful for the community. My current research consists of determining how and when lava erupted from Mt Ruapehu after the last glacial maximum. I will utilize high resolution remote sensing techniques, paleomagnetism and cosmogenic nuclide dating to contribute towards a multihazard assessment for the southern zone of the Tongariro National Park (NZ).
