The focus of my research is on mantle convection, lithosphere dynamics and the origin of plate tectonics, hotspots and mantle plumes, and volcanic flows and eruptions. I also research multi-phase flows that are being applied to both mantle melting as well as carbon sequestration and shale-gas development.

My roles in this project include implementing plate boundary dynamics, plus mantle water and carbon cycling into Open Earth Systems.
