Personal profile

Research overview

I am working on volcanic gas measurements at the East African Rift Volcanoes under the supervision of Dr. William Hutchison, Prof Richard Bates, and Dr. Eva Stueeken.

My Ph.D. project focuses on measurements of soil CO2 flux combined with the determination of the carbon isotopic composition of soil CO2 and analyzing noble gases (like He) collected from fumaroles. I used these measurements to identify the CO2 source feeding to the surface and quantitatively estimate the CO2 emissions. In addition, it is essential to evaluate the potential geothermal resource and understand the possible volcanic hazards associated with these volcanoes in the populated areas of the East African Rift.
