Research Interests

My principal interests all stem from the ultimate goal of predicting eruptions. I am interested in new techniques that produce data that can be integrated into models of the behaviour of a volcano. Once we understand the behaviour, we can try and improve our interpretation of the signals produced by a monitoring network and improve our predictive capacity.

  Conduit processes and the transition between effusive and explosive activity

  Interpretation of complex time series data

  Imaging the subsurface through the integration of geophysical and geochemical data

  Integrating thermal monitoring of volcanoes with other data sets

  Geochemical monitoring of active volcanoes

 

B. PERSONAL

Nick climbing through ash from pyroclastic flow 1 June 2005

 

Volcanoes are my passion. That is why I am in Colima and why I started CIIV in 2004. But Colima has a lot more to offer than just its thundering beast. In 2002 I met Any who was to become my wife and long-time sufferer of my somewhat extreme dedication to my science.


Any and Nick


On the 31 May 2006 by life was enriched with the arrival of my son Oliver
