About

Jamie Farquharson

I'm a post-doctoral research associate at the University of Miami, with a background in imaged-based 3D volcanic terrain reconstruction, rock deformation, and experimental volcanology. Currently I am researching the potential for external triggering of volcanic eruptions by extreme rainfall.
