Curriculum Vitae

  • In 2001, I obtained a Bachelor of Science in Geology-Physics from the University of Ottawa, Canada. My undergraduate research project consisted of describing and interpreting an Archean geological sequence: Volcanoclastic rocks of the Hurd Property, Harker Township, Abitibi Greenstone Belt, Ontario, Canada: A pyroclastic flow emplaced under water.
  • I then went on to pursue a Master in Geological Sciences at the University of Southern California, United States, from 2001 until 2004 where I modeled continuous tiltmeter data from the 1984 rifting event at Krafla Volcano, Iceland, in order to estimate the direction of dike propagation associated with the eruptive fissure.
  • I am currently a doctoral candidate at the University of Munich in the research group of Prof. Donald B. Dingwell. My work focuses on the cooling time scale of volcanic peralkaline glasses and on the processes involved in the explosive fragmentation of magma.
