Brief Summary of research: 

 I am fascinated by volcanoes, diamonds and pink granites*.  Perhaps this is why I am interested in the role of water and other volatiles in magmatic processes.  Volatiles are involved in most igneous processes.  They are central in formation of melts, play a major role in transporting trace elements and radio-isotopes between mantle reservoirs or between mantle and crust, and are the driving force of explosive volcanic eruptions. 

Specific research topics related to Nanoscience and Nanotechnology:

Nano-inclusions in minerals.
