CURRENT RESEARCH AND EDUCATIONAL PROJECTS
PICTURES FROM FIELD TRIPS etc.
Hello and welcome!
I am a Research Associate at the Alaska Volcano Observatory,
Geophysical Institute of the University of Alaska, Fairbanks.
My research interests include petrology of volcanic rocks with emphasis on the dynamics of magma processes at
active volcanoes. My educational background is a peculiar mix of igneous petrology,
experimental petrology, analytical techniques, and remote sensing – all of
them seem to be useful in studying and monitoring volcanoes of
Alaska and Kamchatka. I spend my summer time in a field conducting
research and teaching the field based
International Volcanological School.

10/24/2011 The 2011 summer field season was awesome. We had excellent groups at both Katmai and Kamchatka trips. Despite poor weather conditions we reached all summits. The information on the 2012 field trips will be posted at the International Volcanological Field School website in a couple of months.
