Rebecca is the PI of the Catastrophic Flows Research Cluster. Rebecca welcomes PhD applications in volcanic flows, igneous petrology, modelling volcanic processes, volcanic stratigraphy (including tephrostratigraphy) and historical/social/cultural volcanology. Also on the history of Earth Science, and EDI in Earth Science.
