Research

Earth and Planetary Fluid Dynamics

My research couples thermodynamics and fluid dynamics in multiphase systems within geophysical settings using analytical, numerical and experimental techniques. Current research is focused on the areas of multiphase flows in porous media including carbon sequestration, solidification and melting in magmatic systems and the cryosphere, on elastically dominated fluid flows in tectonic and cryospheric settings, and on the solidification of the lunar magma ocean and the generation of magnetic fields in early solar system planetesimals.

Key interests include:

* solidification and convection of binary alloys and slurries
* fluid flow in porous media
* coupling fluid flow and elastic deformation
