Research interests :

My research focuses on understanding magma degassing from magma at depth to the surface. I am interested in integrating both dissolved and exsolved volatile behaviour during magmatic processes (e.g. differentiation, degassing). I have studied the exsolution path of magmatic volatiles by combining 1) Volatile (H2O, CO2, S, Cl, F) concentrations dissolved in melt inclusions and in the groundmass glasses. 2) Volcanic gas composition (plume or fumaroles) and 3) Volcanic SO2 flux. The techniques used to measure gas compositions and fluxes are of particular interest for gas monitoring.
