Petrogenesis of late-stage, high-K bimodal magmas within a continental arc: an example from the Ross Orogen, Antarctica
Nicoletta is a geochemist whose graduate work at UCSB focused on the chemistry of magmas produced during the end of a mountain-building event; her work has taken her as far away as Antarctica and Iceland, but she’s happy to be in sunny Santa Barbara teaching geology right now. In addition to UCSB, she also teaches courses at SBCC. In her spare time she plays the cello, hosts a folk music show at KCSB, and tries to spend time with her kitty.
