Me, in the cold, summit of Etna in the background.
Apologies for the tardy/lack of posting recently, I promise to get back to regular posting from now on! I have now left my old job and have taken up a PhD position at the University of Sheffield, which will free up a little time during the day for me to post. The basic target of my future research is Sulphur Dioxide released by open conduit basaltic volcanoes.
I have already had the chance to do some fieldwork at the summit of Mt Etna, some of the photos/videos are available via the above links. Until my next post enjoy the photos of me and the subject of my most recent field trip the plume visible in the background of each photo.
