Eric will work on the Marsden Fund project Exploding the Pyroclastic Flow enigma with Life-Scalable Experiments, which will see him exploring the dynamics of pyroclastic density currents through large-scale simulations. Eric’s PhD is supervised by Professor Shane Cronin, Dr Gert Lube and Professor Jim Jones. Rafael’s project is on the Maximum Likely Eruptions from Mt Taranaki and is supervised by Professor Shane Cronin, Dr Alan Palmer and Natalia Pardo.
