Prof. Einat Lev, Ph.D.
Einat Lev is an associate research professor at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory (LDEO) of Columbia University in New York City.
She studied geophysics and computer science at Tel-Aviv University, and obtained her doctoral degree in geophysics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, under the supervision of Brad Hager. She was a postdoctoral fellow at Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory (LDEO). In 2014 she became a research professor there and established the LDEO Physical Volcanology group.
Einat Lev’s research is focused on the fluid mechanics of volcanic eruptions and lava flows in particular. She investigates the dynamics and physical properties of magmas and lavas using a combination of numerical models, lab experiments, and field observations, specially using drones.
She is a Visiting Fellow in February and summer 2019 in the context of the CAS Research Group "Magma to Tephra: Ash in the Earth System" led by Prof. Dr. Donald B. Dingwell.
