This page is all about Alex

My main research interests are focussed on understanding the formation and evolution of shallow magmatic systems and forecasting volcanic eruptions. In particular, using precursory field data from active volcanoes, I combine physical models of elastic-brittle deformation with numerical and statistical modelling techniques (1) to quantify eruption potential in terms of volcano seismicity and ground deformation, and (2) to investigate the evolution of stress fields around shallow magma bodies and how these determine critical levels of volcano unrest and, in some instances, preferred eruption location.
