My research focuses on understanding magmatic processes, from melting in the mantle to the growth of large eruptible magma bodies. I currently hold a Postgraduate Research Fellowship, funded by the Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851, during which I will use in situ microanalytical techniques to investigate melt transport processes within crystal-rich magma storage reservoirs.
