I am a volcanologist. My current research interests include volcano-tectonic interactions and instability, understanding Auckland's volcanic past and future risk, large-scale explosive volcanism at New Zealand andesite volcanoes, Taranaki, Tongariro and Ruapehu, volcanoes of the South Pacific (Vanuatu, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Fiji), as well as other volcanoes further afield in Indonesia, Saudi Arabia and Korea.
