Jackie Evan Kendrick is a Senior Research Associate in volcanology and geothermal research in the School of Environmental Sciences at University of Liverpool. She is an experimentalist and field geologist who uses magma deformation tests, rock mechanics, microstructural work and geochemical analytical approaches to understand volcanic, magmatic and hydrothermal systems. She obtained her PhD in Mineralogy from the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich in 2013, and has a Masters in Geology from University College London. Since then she has worked as a Research Associate in The University of Edinburgh and held a prestigious Early Career Fellowship of the Leverhulme Trust at the University of Liverpool. Jackie has won several grants and collaborative projects, funded by the European Research Council, UK Research and Innovation and the German Research Foundation (DFG) amongst others. In 2016 she received the Outstanding Young Scientist Award from the Geochemistry-Mineralogy-Petrology-Volcanology division of the European Geosicences Union. She has over 50 published journal articles and book chapters, is member of a number of governing and advisory bodies, and has sat on panels for various European funding agencies. She is also an Editor for Frontiers and Journal of Volcanology and Geothermal Research, has chaired sessions at national and international conferences and was the lead organiser of the Joint Assembly, a specialist conference with >450 attendees in Liverpool in 2017. Jackie became a Fellow of the Young Academy of Europe in 2019.

Jackie’s expertise include magma rheology, rock physics, dome-building volcanoes and eruptions, magma and rock permeability, sector collapses and large mass movements/ landslides, thermal and mechanical stimulation, volcano monitoring, microseismics and seismology, geomagnetism, hydrothermal alteration, building and structure resilience to ballistic impacts, and technological development including in-situ 4D tomography at high temperature, and design of bespoke high temperature and high pressure experimental apparatus. Jackie is also interested in the development of online, accessible teaching materials, specifically virtual experiments and field trips and has taught on an annual residential training programme for Teachers of Geology accredited by the Geological Society of London.
