My work focuses on mathematical applications in volcanology and hazards studies. 

My main expertise includes the analysis and numerical solution of dynamical systems (especially nonlinear PDEs) as well as probability theory.  I have applied these techniques to models of geophysical flows (e.g., lava and debris flows, dome degassing), developing probabilistic volcanic cloud detection and characterization methods, and analysis of probabilistic hazards maps.
