Research Interest

I have been fascinated by volcanoes since my childhood, and after a trip to New Zealand where I was able to walk into the crater of an active volcano (White Island), I decided to dedicate my professional life to the study of volcanic and geothermal processes. I am currently working on the geochemistry of fluids and rocks in various geothermal areas of Iceland. I use various geochemical tools, including multiple sulphur isotopes, in order to investigate the source, transport and fate of sulphur-bearing and other compounds.  I am also interested in the interplay between geothermal springs and microbiology. Besides my research projects, I am responsible for the labs and the analytical instruments of the GEYSIR group, and sometimes teach a course on analytical geochemistry. In my spare time I dance and teach argentine Tango.
