Dr. Kim Genareau’s research profiled

Kim Genareau’s recent paper in Geology, focused on the interaction of volcanic ash and lightning, garnered public attention to her research. But this profile describes her work on the geochemistry of particularly violent volcanic eruptions. Understanding the causes of such eruptions is a major theme in her research, including her most recent paper in the Geological Society of London based on analyses conducted on materials ejected from Indonesia’s Mt. Merapi.
