Profile

I am now an associated professor in Zhejiang University. I received my BS and PhD degrees in Geology in Department of Earth Sciences of Zhejiang University, China, in 2006 and 2011, respectively. After a short (3 months) work in Research institute of China National Offshore Oil Company (CNOOC) Ltd. (Shanghai), I returned to school in October 2011, and became a post-doctorial research fellow and then an assistant professor in Department of Earch Sciences, Zhejiang Univerisity. I was promoted to be an associated professor on Jan 2015.

Research work

Structural Geology and Basin Analysis. I am interested in understanding the principle of crustal deformation by integrated use of field observation, geomorphology, seismic interpretaton, thermochronology, satellite imagery, laboratory modeling and some other geochemical measurements. In recent years, I pay much attention to the growth of the Tibetan Plateau, and focus mainly on the Altyn Tagh Fault, one of the most important strike-slip faults in the plateau, and the Qaidam Basin, the largest sedimentary basin inside the plateau. I attempt to establish a tectonic- to- sedimentary link between the two tectonic units through work of our team, and some meaningful progress has already been obtained.
