Prof Madeleine Humphreys, Durham University
Professor and researcher in igneous petrology, volcanology and magmatism. Research interests are in understanding magma storage, evolution and migration within the crust using both natural materials and experimental approaches. Current research projects include (i) using crystal textures to understand and quantify magma solidifcation and the physical behaviour of crystal mushes, and (ii) volatiles in volcanic processes, including the timing of fluid exsolution and the enrichment and migration of metals in volcanic settings. I am always happy to hear from potential students or post-doctoral researchers interested in developing projects at Durham.
