East Africa

During my PhD I studied several volcanic complexes along the East African Rift. I covered a diverse range of research topics including…

  • Records of past volcanism 
  • Causes of volcanic unrest
  • Geothermal resources and development
  • Volcanic degassing and the deep carbon budget of an active rift 

Much of this work has been published and several studies were picked up by the media. I am continuing a number of projects as part of the RiftVolc consortium and am always open to new collaborations on these topics!
