Research Interest
Igneous Petrology and Mantle Geochemistry
   Based on the field investigation, petrographic observation and geochemical study utilizing integrated tracer of elements and isotopes (e.g.,Sr, Nd, Pb, Hf and Mg, Fe, Zn) of mantle-derived volcanic rocks, aiming to study: (1) the chemical composition and evolution of mantle, (2) the melting process occurred in mantle, and (3) the evolution of magma at different depth.
