Associate Professor Heather Handley is an ARC Future Fellow in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences, Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia.

Heather’s research interests include: (i) the integration of field volcanology and volcano geochemistry, (ii) volcanic hazards and risk, (iii) magma genesis at subduction zones (petrological, mineralogical, geochemical and isotopic perspectives) (iv) timescales of magmatic processes using uranium-series isotopes and elemental diffusion in volcanic minerals, (v) behaviour of uranium-series isotopes during weathering and erosion and the uranium-series constraints on the formation age of sediments, (vi) geochemical investigations into contaminated land and water.
