Summary

 

Summary

As a marine geophysicist I work primarily with a combination of controlled source seismic and potential field data in order to understand regional tectonic processes. My PhD was conducted as part of the VoiLA (Volatile Cycling in the Lesser Antilles Arc) research programme, and in particular, focused on the role that the subduction of water has played in the long-term evolution of the Antilles arc.
