Dr Teresa Ubide is a volcanologist with a passion for understanding why, how and when volcanic eruptions start. She undertook her postgraduate research in Spain and The Netherlands (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam), and received her PhD from the University of Zaragoza in December 2013. She then held a research fellowship at Trinity College Dublin (Ireland) for 2.5 years, before joining The University of Queensland (Australia) as a Lecturer in Igneous Petrology/Volcanology in July 2016.
Teresa combines field observations and detailed microscopy with state-of-the-art analytical techniques. She studies a wide range of active and past volcanic systems in different tectonic settings around the world. Her current research focuses on minerals hosted in volcanic rocks, as they provide a detailed record of the processes leading to eruptions.
