The GEOGRAF Project






The GEOGRAF project is a research project undertaken in the framework of a Marie Curie Intra-European fellowship in the School of Earth Sciences of the University of Bristol. The researchers involves are:

Dr. Lydie Staron

is holding a CNRS research position in the Institut le Rond d'Alembert in Paris since 2006. She is presently visiting the Volcanology group of the School of Earth Sciences of the University of Bristol for two years under European funding. Her research interests focus on the behavior and modeling of granular flows in natural or industrial contexts, using discrete and continuum numerical approaches, and lately, laboratory experiments.

Dr Jeremy C. Phillips

is a Physical Volcanologist with research interests in the fluid dynamics of geological and volcanic two-phase flows, and a particular focus on developing predictive models for volcanic hazard. He uses laboratory experiments and theoretical models to investigate the dynamics of volcanic processes and flows, including explosive volcanic eruptions, volcanic plumes and ash dispersal, pyroclastic flows and lahars (volcanic mudflows), and volcanic degassing. He is interested in combining field observations and theory to develop new volcano monitoring tools, and also undertake fundamental research into granular flow and landslide dynamics.
