James K. Russell - Curriculum Vitae#

Position: Full Professor (1999- current), Volcanology and Petrology Laboratory

Scope of research:

My expertise is in the fields of volcanology and petrology with allied skills in thermodynamics, mathematics, optimization and computer programming. I am fundamentally interested in the formation and physical-chemical evolution of magmas and their eruption. My research has involved numerical analysis of chemical data and computer modelling of the thermodynamic consequences of magmatic processes coupled to field-based observations.

Current research interests:

1. Glaciovolcanism as probes of paleo-environment and proxies for paleo-climate.
2. Predictive models for transport properties of silicate melts and magmas.
3. High-temperature rock mechanic experiments on the rheology of volcanic systems.
