Research Interests:

My research can be summarized as: the petrochemistry of ore deposits and its constraints on geodynamic evolution and crustal growth.

The precise time and the origin of ore-forming mineralization are the two of the most effective factors in unraveling ore genesis.

However, most hydrothermal ore deposits formed at a relatively low temperature (<300oC) and contain very few suitable minerals for radiometric dating. Therefore, my current research interest is focused towards understanding the precise time of formation of different types of ore deposits.

Isotopes are not easily affected by later thermal events. Consequently, stable or radiogenic isotopes can effectively trace the origin of hydrothermal fluids. Therefore, I am particularly interested in the in situ isotopes of hydrothermal minerals.

Combining the knowledge of the timing and origin of ore deposits can help us to understand when, where and how they formed, and also it aids the prediction of potential targets. However, beyond their economic significance, ore deposits contain important petrochemical and isotopic information of fundamental value to the Earth Sciences, because understanding the genesis and evolution of diagnostic ore deposits is a critical and important means of analyzing and evaluating crustal growth, and it plays a key role in unraveling the plate tectonic history of complex collisional and accretionary orogenic belts of any age. In short, the formation of ore deposits is a key component of continental evolution.
