• Use a combination of computer modelling and Bayesian statistical approaches to undertake probabilistic modelling of eruption source vents and pyroclastic density currents at the case study volcanoes, Aluto and/or Corbetti volcanoes, in the Main Ethiopian Rift• employ recently developed statistical emulator methodologies for quantitative volcanic hazard assessment• use statistical emulator approaches to quantify relevant uncertainties• disseminate research findings through peer-reviewed publications and international conference presentations.
• Contribute to development of multi-hazard assessments for volcanoes in the Main Ethiopian Rift alongside RiftVolc collaborators • collaborate broadly with other volcanic hazards research in the RiftVolc project• collaborate on database development of eruption parameters for the Main Ethiopian Rift• present research findings at annual RiftVolc project meetings• contribute to capacity building initiatives in Ethiopia to provide training in hazard assessment• contribute to stakeholder reports on volcanic hazards.
