Paul Hall’s research focuses on the use of fluid dynamic models to further our understanding of Earth’s deep interior and the processes related to mantle convection. In particular, he is interested in melt generation and migration processes at subduction zones and the interaction between mantle plumes and the mid-ocean ridge system. He employs a variety of modeling techniques to these ends, including 2- and 3-D numerical methods and laboratory modeling.
