Senior Lecturer in Earth Sciences, University of Tasmania

Dr Rebecca Carey is a Senior Lecturer and Australian Research Council DECRA fellow in the School of Physical Sciences in the Faculty of Science.

She is a volcanologist with research themes in earth and marine sciences. Rebecca's research uses field studies, microanalytical and volatile analysis on the products of volcanic eruptions to understand magma's ascent to, and eruption at, the surface.

Her expertise in volcanology of the modern seafloor and terrestrial settings has proven invaluable for knowledge and understanding of ancient volcano-sedimentary successions.
