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 geophysicist within the group I will be working primarily with a combination of passive and controlled source seismic data (most importantly an OBS seismic data set being collected in early 2017 by the R.S.S. James Cook) in order to better constrain the distribution of water in the down-going plate and the along-arc crustal structure of the Antilles.
