I work with VDAP's foreign partners to better understand the eruption histories and hazards of their dangerous volcanoes. My work focusses on volcanic stratigraphy with an emphasis on field-based projects. I also develop regional and local tephrostratigraphies using ash layers in cores and am developing new applications for long-lived plant species to provide insight into past volcanic activity.
