After a career break to raise a family, I returned to research and to the University of Leicester as a Daphne Jackson Research Fellow. This post was joint funded by NERC and the University of Leicester. My research focussed on the elastic response of vesicular volcanic rocks to compression using the finite element method. I also collaborated on the development of numerical models of volcanic sill emplacement. I am currently a geophysics Teaching Fellow.
