I am a geophysics PhD candidate that likes seismology, volcanoes and exploration geophysics.
Among other things, I want to understand how active volcanoes work: Is their seismic behavior intrinsically different than in other places? What do volcanoes do when they are not erupting? What do they do when they are erupting? Are some volcanic eruptions predictable? And once a volcano is undergoing an eruption, how do we know when is it going to end?
I am also very curious about what is underneath the ice and permafrost of Antarctica and how those hidden geological features may affect the cryosphere.
