I currently focus all my energy on untangling and understanding the Holocene history of Gede volcano, Java, Indonesia. To be more precise, I wish to learn more about the followings: 

  • the evolution of the magma reservoir(s): which petrologic processes dominate
  • the plumbing system of the volcano: the location(s) of magma reservoir(s)
  • geochemical complexity and its causes
  • time-scales involved in such processes in the reservoir and/or in the conduit

To address these problems, I use a combined approach what includes field works, qualitative analytical solutions (XRF, EPMA, LA-ICP-MS, FTIR, Raman-microspectroscopy), as well as modeling and computer simulations. The main goal of my study is to link all the above-mentioned parameters to the recent monitoring data and understand better the hazards and risks what Gede may pose.

As a ‘side effect’, I am involved in a collaborative project to improve our understanding of relationship between solid-state diffusion in minerals and crystal geometry.
