Ph.D. Geology 2014, University of Missouri – Columbia

Dr. Robert is an experimental volcanologist. She studies the physical and chemical properties of volcanic materials and how they influence the eruptive behavior of volcanoes. Genevieve measures the viscosity of lava she creates in the lab by melting rocks collected from both active and ancient volcanoes. Genevieve’s teaching interests include mineralogy, igneous and metamorphic petrology, volcanology, planetary geology, and magmatic ore deposits.
