Welcome to the Gregg Lab

Volcano Geophysics & Geodynamics @Illinois

I am an earth scientist intrigued by the geologic processes that shape the Earth and other planets. I am particularly interested in the formation and evolution of volcanic systems on the sea floor, on land, and on other planets. My current research utilizes thermomechanical models to better understand the rheological controls on magma reservoir growth, pressurization, and volcanic eruption. I also use geodynamic models to investigate melting and melt migration in the mantle beneath mid-ocean ridges. My work involves a multi-pronged approach that combines data collection on land and at sea with data analysis and model development. Future projects include case studies of active continental volcanic systems as well as seagoing field expeditions to better understand the formation of new oceanic crust at mid-ocean ridges.
