Research summary

I study gas movements in crystalline magmas through analogue experiments, using golden syrup (melt), glass beads or sugar (crystals) and air (magmatic volatiles). I am specifically interested in how crystals influence magmatic degassing, and the different regimes which result from bubble-crystal interactions. My aim is to produce constitutive equations for gas flow rates in crystalline magmas which could be included in flow models.
