Research interests

I use numerical simulation and heat transfer computation to explore magmatic processes. I quantitatively study the genesis of differentiated melts in deep hot zones, the relationship between pluton emplacement and growth of large magma chambers, and the development of thermal aureoles around plutons.

I have applied my models to the study of the Manaslu leucogranites (Nepal), the Snake River Plain rhyolites (USA), and Mount Pelée and Soufrière Hills magma chamber (Lesser Antilles).

I am currently focusing on how large volumes of magma are emplaced in the crust using data from the field and modeling. I am also interested in forward modeling the geophysical signals related to magma intrusion.
