I am a member of the Institute of Geophysics and Tectonics in the School of Earth and Environment at the University of Leeds. My main research interests are volcanology, and the study of volcanic deformation. Currently, I am pursuing a PhD investigating surface deformation from stalled magma bodies.
During my MSc project, I used Sentinel-1 InSAR to investigate long-term deformation at non-erupting volcanic centres in the Kenyan Rift. During my PhD project, I will continue to study surface deformation at inter-eruptive volcanic centres, by investigating the processes which affect volume changes in a magma body following emplacement, and stalling. This will involve examining satellite radar measurements of deformation, modelling the volume changes during the evolution of different magmas and performing analogue experiments to understand how deformation is generated by a body of magma in the upper crust.
