Who Are we?
We are a research group studying "all-volcanoes". Our work has taken us to the high Andes, the far reaches of Russia, the world's oceans, and the fantastic volcano laboratories in our backyard.

How to Join
We are always interested in growing our group. If you have a deep curiosity about magmas, volcanoes, and related magmatic processes email us!
If you have an interest to combine petrology and geochemistry working on a Cascade volcano and you also are interested in learning more about the physics of granular materials - contact me. There is an NSF funded project waiting for you!

Other fun stuff ...
Beyond our research, we enjoy being near the mountains and the desert. Amazing geology is wherever you go, arc volcanoes ... big batholiths ... large calderas ... and much more.
