    == Headline text == Research interests: volcanology in general, pyroclastic sedimentology, and the mass movement of debris across the Earth's surface following geo-catastrophes. Primarily use field studies of deposits to derive information about emplacement processes. Specifically interested in: - the transport and deposition of tephra by pyroclastic density currents; - basaltic volcanism, effusive and explosive; - volcanic edifice growth and evolution, encompassing all scales from - monogenetic cones, to calderas, ocean island volcanoes and large igneous provinces; - aggregation mechanisms in atmospheric dust clouds applied to volcanic eruptions and meteorite impacts; - kimberlite volcanism and conduit processes; - dispersal of ejecta following large meteorite impacts.
