Brett B Carr, PhD

I am a volcanologist studying the physical processes driving volcanic eruptions. The primary goal of my research is to combine observational and numerical modeling techniques to develop a more complete understanding of active volcanism. As a Mendenhall Postdoc at the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory, I am investigating lava flow emplacement processes during the 2018 eruption of Kīlauea Volcano.
