Volcanologist and Unapologetic Gravity Geek
Picture of Patricia

Hello and welcome!
I’m a geophysical consultant at MacQueen Geophysical Consulting. I completed my Master’s thesis on geophysics and volcanology at Simon Fraser University. My twin passions are gravimetry and volcanology. I am fascinated by volcanoes both in a geological and a human sense. I am also gravity-mad, endlessly curious to find new applications for gravimetry and techniques for improving existing methods. My research to date has mainly focused on using gravimetry to study volcanoes; however, in the future I hope to do more research on improving and expanding gravity techniques.
