Emma is a Teaching Fellow in Geology at the School of Ocean and Earth Sciences, University of Southampton. As part of her research, she uses multidisciplinary approaches to investigate the evolution of volcanic systems and mantle processes.
- The interplay between volcanism and active continental rifting.
- Links between dynamic mantle processes and Earth surface processes
- Tephra dispersal and degradation.
- Volcanic eruption dynamics
I serve as module coordinator for SOES3020 - Volcanic and Magmatic Processes.
I also serve as module coordinator for SOES2004 - Igneous and Magmatic Processes.
I contribute to teaching SOES2037 - Structural Geology and GIS.
External roles and responsibilities
Emma obtained her MEarthSci in Earth Sciences from the University of Oxford in 2018, and her Ph.D. in Volcanology at the University of Southampton in 2023. Her research focuses on volcanism in active continental rifts, particularly in Ethiopia. She specialises in GIS, igneous petrology and geochemistry, and is passionate about using multidisaplinary approaches to tackle some of the big challenges in geology. In 2022, Emma carried out a 5-month research placement, at the University of Hawaii (with Prof. Bruce Houghton), investigating the tephra dispersal of the 2018 Lower East Rift Zone on the island of Hawaii.
