Education

2007        Ph.D. in Igneous Petrology and Geochemistry, The University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong

                 Dissertation:  Origin of the Permian Panzhihua Layered Gabbroic Intrusion and the hosted Fe-Ti-V Oxide Deposit, Sichuan Province, SW China

Advisors: Drs. Mei-Fu Zhou and John G. Malpas

2003        B.Sc. in Earth Sciences, The University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong


Research

I use geochronology, geochemistry, mineral chemistry, petrology and petrologic modeling to investigate magma genesis, including melt-forming processes and conditions in the source, magma chamber processes and their roles in the compositional diversity of magmas, and subsolidus processes when magmas cool and form igneous rocks. I am also interested in processes responsible for generating economic concentrations of elements in magmatic systems. Some specific topics include:

·       Magmatism and tectonics in the Middle East Tethysides

·       Continental intraplate magmatism (e.g. large igneous provinces, LIPs)

·       Layered intrusions and magmatic ore deposits

·       Petrogenesis of Fe-Ti-P-rich rocks
