Research work

My current research in basin analysis, igneous petrology and tectonics is aimed to understand the Mesozoic-Cenozoic evolution of the East and West China and its effect on energy resources in these regions. In the aspect of basin analysis, my studies integrate field survey, the seismic and borehole data to investigate sedimentary and structural records of basins and clarify the interacting process between basins and ranges in East and West China during the Mesozoic time. In the aspect of magmatic events, we aim to delineate the tempo-spatial variations of the Mesozoic magmatism and test geodynamic models to interpret the Mesozoic tectonic evolution, based on the geochronology, geochemistry and isotopes of igneous rocks and other geological records.
