November 2016 the Gregg Lab is heading to sea! Follow along with the OASIS Science Team on an expedition of discovery to investigate submarine volcanoes that have never been explored before. *Like* our Facebook Page and/or *Subscribe* to our YouTube Channel to receive updates during our Nov-Dec 2016 Expedition.

I am a first year Ph.D. student working with Dr. Trish Gregg to develop and test more sophisticated methods of matching thermomechanical numerical models to geophysical data (such as ground deformation, seismicity, or gravity) being collected at active volcanoes. In particular, I am interested in how volcanoes react to new pulses of magma from below, the factors determining whether a pulse will lead to an eruption or not, and how these processes translate to observable signals at the surface. In the long run, I want to further expand and refine my models so that they can assimilate an even wider variety of data, such as gas geochemistry.
