I completed my MSci Geophysics at the University of Southampton in 2017, where my dissertation was ‘Using Seismicity to understand the dynamics of magma motion prior to the volcanic eruption of Sholan Island in the Red Sea in December 2011’. This involved looking at local earthquakes that occurred prior to the eruption, and then locating these to get an idea of how the magma moved prior to the eruption to help constrain the feeder dyke for the eruption.
My main interests are Volcanology and Seismology and undertaking research that will be beneficial to populations in the future, such as assisting in Volcanic eruption predictions.
‘Improvements with a purpose: The role of accurate earthquake locations in the mapping of a volcanic plumbing system’
The projects aims to identify and develop the best method for accurately location earthquakes at the Soufriere Hills Volcano in Montserrat, which will be used by Montserrat Volcano Observatory (MVO) to re-locate past events. The new locations will then be used to investigate the magmatic system beneath the volcano alongside other techniques.
