The Big Island

Aloha! I still can't quite believe it, but I've landed a job at the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory. I will be modelling the topography of lava flow inundation paths and also looking at ashfall zones and volcanic plumes. The observatory is located on Hawai'i (The Big Island), right by the caldera of Kilauea, the most active volcano on the planet. I'm hoping to be out there for 3 - 6 months.

At last my masters is over! I'm now going to be leaving my job at Foster + Partners to do some voluntary work abroad (more to follow). I've included the final habitat suitability map for the Magellanic woodpecker. Please see the separate website for more details.
