New PhD students

30 June 2014

Szabolcs Kosik Braden Walsh

Two new PhD students have started in Volcanic Risk Solutions. Szabolcs Kósik comes to VRS from Hungary. His PhD project focuses on understanding the eruption mechanisms and future eruption scenarios of small volume satellite volcanoes in the Central North Island of New Zealand. Szabolcs’s research is supervised by Dr Karoly Nemeth, Dr Jonathan Procter, Dr Georg Zellmer, and Professor Shane Cronin.

US student Braden Walsh is the newest member of VRS. Braden’s PhD research will investigate the use of seismic and other geophysical data to not only detect mass movements at volcanoes, but also determine the physical characteristics of the mass flows from a combination of individual sensors. Braden’s research is supervised by Dr Jonathan Procter, Professor Shane Cronin, and Dr Art Jolly, from GNS Science.
