My research interests are in structural geology and tectonics. Aims of my research are to understand 1) structural processes act before, during and after continental collision 2) metamorphism and exhumation of metamorphic rocks, 3) trace elements partitioning during metamorphism, and 4) tectonic evolution of continents. I am particularly interested in field-based research aiming to unravel ductile deformation process, regional structural development and continental tectonics. To address these issues, I integrate field- and lab-based structural and petrologic analysis with thermobarometry, geo/thermochronology, and isotopic geochemistry to test evolution of orogenic systems.
My previous research focused on lithofacies and paleogeography evolution of Zengmu Basin, South China Sea, and tectonothermal analysis of Barrovian metamorphic zones in Jinshajiang Suture, Eastern Tibetan Plateau. My current research focuses on P-T-t history and trace element study of the North-East Greenland Caledonides. Specifically, I have been applying pseudosection modeling and trace element analysis to samples from North-East Greenland Eclogite Province to elucidate metamorphic P-T path, and trace elements partitioning of HP/UHP eclogites and gneisses formed during Caledonian Orogeny.
