I study geo-materials of the solid silicate Earth, specifically glass, melts, magmas, and igneous rocks. I investigate magmatic and volcanic processes, with a focus on the study of magma flow. I primarily use experimental work to quantify the fundamental transport (viscosity) and thermodynamic (heat capacity, density) properties necessary to build viscosity models and to model and understand igneous geologic processes at all scales.
