Speaker: Dr Teresa Ubide

Abstract: High-resolution analysis of the rock record provides new insights into magmatic processes leading to volcanic eruptions and to the accumulation of energy-critical metals.

Bio: Dr Teresa Ubide is an Associate Professor in Igneous Petrology / Volcanology at The University of Queensland. She is an ARC Future Fellow and won the 2023 Anton Hales Medal (Australian Academy of Science). Teresa combines novel LA-ICP-MS approaches with detailed microscope observations to interrogate magmatic crystals and their carrier melts at elemental and isotope levels. Her research constrains magma transport and storage through the Earth’s upper mantle and crust, with a particular focus on the drivers of volcanic eruptions and the processes that lead to the accumulation of metals that are critical for the energy transition.
