Nick looking at pyroclastic flow front, May 2005
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

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.
