Agust Gudmundsson is a structural geologist and a volcanologist whose research focuses on volcanotectonics, seismotectonics, and fluid transport in the Earth’s crust. His MSc and PhD are from Imperial College London (University of London). He was a research professor of magmatic processes at the Nordic Volcanological Institute, University of Iceland, then a professor of hydrogeology of solid rocks at the University of Bergen (Norway), and then Head of Department and Chair of Structural Geology and Geodynamics at the University of Gottingen (Germany). Currently, Gudmundsson holds a University of London Chair in Structural Geology at Royal Holloway (UK). Gudmundsson’s main research interests are in the physics and tectonics of geological processes, including the formation of collapse calderas, fracture (dike, fault) propagation paths, energies of volcanic and tectonic (earthquake) processes, and the application of continuum and statistical physics for understanding and forecasting these. Gudmundsson is a member of Academia Europaea (the European Academy), an editor on several earth-science journals, and author of some 190 scientific publications, including the books ‘Rock Fractures in Geological Processes’ (Cambridge University Press, 2011), ‘The Glorious Geology of Iceland’s Golden Circle’ (Springer-Nature, 2017), and ‘Volcanotectonics’ (Cambridge University Press, 2018).
