I am a Research Assistant Professor at the Alaska Volcano Observatory, Geophysical Institute of the University of Alaska, Fairbanks. My research interests include petrology of volcanic rocks with emphasis on the dynamics of magma processes at active volcanoes. My educational background is a peculiar mix of igneous petrology, experimental petrology, analytical techniques, and remote sensing – all of them seem to be useful in studying and monitoring volcanoes of Alaska and Kamchatka. I spend my summer time in a field conducting research and teaching the field based International Volcanological School.
