Project Title: Volatile recycling at the Lesser Antilles arc: A geophysical study
Project Supervisor: Dr Jenny Collier
I am currently a PhD student at Imperial College working as part of the VOILA (Volatile Cycling in the Lesser Antilles Arc) research programme. As a marine geophysicist within the group I work primarily with a combination of controlled source seismic data (most importantly an OBS seismic data set being collected in early 2017 by the R.S.S. James Cook) and potential field data in order to understand the role that the subduction of water has played in the long-term evolution of the Antilles arc.
