Project Title
High-resolution geochemical mapping of volcanic ash: constraining the effect of syneruptive magma mixing on eruptive style and ash distribution
Project Description

The project will quantify the compositional heterogeneity of ash caused by syn-eruptive mixing to determine physical and chemical mechanisms associated with volcanic ash production. We will also provide new constrains for the modeling of ash production and dispersion caused by syn-eruptive magma mixing.

Research Interests

Igneous Petrology and magmatic systems

About me

I studied at the University of Kiel/Germany and attained my master’s degree in February 2014. My master’s thesis focuses on magma evolution and on crustal storage at Laguna del Maule/Chile.
