Professor Jocelyn McPhie has a joint appointment in Volcanology at CODES and Earth Sciences in the School of Physical Sciences, UTAS. She received her undergraduate and Honours degree from Macquarie University, Sydney (1979), and PhD from the University of New England (1986). She then held a Fulbright Postdoctoral position at the University of Hawaii and University of Texas, USA, followed by a Queen Elizabeth II Fellowship at the Bureau of Mineral Resources (now Geoscience Australia). She joined CODES at UTAS in 1990, and was awarded an Alexander Von Humboldt Foundation Fellowship to study in Germany 1992-1993. She leads CODES' volcanology research and teaches volcanology and general geology in Earth Sciences degree program. Jocelyn has also presented numerous professional short courses on volcanology to industry and other geoscience groups worldwide. She is senior author of Volcanic Textures, a book published by CODES and used worldwide by students and geologists working in both modern and ancient volcanic successions. She is a past vice-president of the International Association for Volcanology and Chemistry of the Earth's Interior, an editor for the Bulletin of Volcanology and an editor for the Geological Society of America Bulletin.
Jocelyn has made a major contribution to physical volcanology through her research into submarine volcanic successions and textures in volcanic rocks. She also has wide experience in the volcanology of subaerial volcanic successions, including felsic successions composed of unusually voluminous lavas. Her applied research focuses on the volcanic setting and timing of ore deposits in volcanic successions, and on identifying links between volcanic and hydrothermal processes.
