EDUCATION: 2013 BSc in Geology, School of Earth Science and Engineering, Nanjing University; 2018 PhD in Petrology and Geochemistry, Department of Earth Sciences, The University of Hong Kong

ACADEMIC PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE: 2018 to 2019 Feb, Research Assistant, The University of Hong Kong; since 2019, Postdoctoral position, University of Saint Joseph


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.
