Research Interest
Mantle geochemistry, igneous Petrology, metal isotopic geochemistry
   1): mantle heterogeneity and crustal recycling
   2): genesis of oceanic and continental intraplate basalts
   3): Mg-Fe-Zn-K isotopic fractionation in high-temperature geological processes.
In recent years, my research focuses are:
   1): Ocean island basalts from the South Pacific and the South Atlanic,
   2): Cenozoic continental intraplate basalts from northeast Asia.
