Heather L. Lehto, Ph.D.

My research focuses on shallow volcanic processes imaged through seismicity. Specifically how magmatic processes can alter the local stress field at volcanoes and how seismology can be used to image the magma plumbing system. I am also interested in creating and assessing new and innovative teaching tools as part of my research into Geoscience Education
