I am a petrologist and geochemist and work on basaltic volcanic systems, from the scale of a melt inclusion to complete volcanic provinces. Special interests are tracing hydrothermal circulation at mid-ocean ridges by basalt chemistry, the formation and evolution of new oceanic crust (Red Sea, South China Sea) and the role of volatiles in the source for melt formation processes (Cameroon Volcanic Line).
