Jennifer McLeod

Graduate Studet


I am currently a second year master’s student at Central Washington University. My current research involves the use of the Magma Chamber Simulator to produce quantitative models that reflect the recharge, assimilation, and fractional crystallization history of Parinacota volcano, northern Chile (52 ka- recent). The focus of this study is to characterize the open system processes associated with the compositional change and increase in eruptive flux that followed a cone collapse ~8 kyr. In my spare time I enjoy being outdoors- spending many weekends hiking and camping around Washington with my dog.
