Understanding the dynamics of magmatic systems has implications for planetary evolution, volcanism, geothermal energy, and the formation of ore deposits. These interlinked themes are approached through a combination of field observation, thermodynamics, experimental petrology and geochemical analysis. Of particular interest is the role that igneous petrology can play in helping the transition to green economies through the development of new sustainable strategies for minerals exploration and extraction, and integration with geothermal power generation.
