My research focuses on (1) Paleozoic sedimentary exhalative sulfide (SEDEX) deposits, volcanic hosted massive sulfide (VHMS) deposits and Mississippi Valley-type sulfide (MVT) deposits in South China, and (2) seafloor massive sulfide deposits (SMS) formed in hydrothermal systems from slower spreading mid-ocean ridges, like the Mid-Atlantic Ridge and the Southwest Indian Ridge.
