EDUCATION

2018

Ph.D. in Igneous Petrology and Geochemistry, Institute for Planetary Materials, Okayama University at Misasa, Japan

Dissertation: Petrological, geochronological and geochemical study of late Cenozoic volcanic rocks from the Chugoku district, southwest Japan: Implications for the evolution of subduction zone and volcanic arc

Advisors: Prof. Eizo Nakamura, Assist. Prof. Hiroshi Kitagawa

2010

B.Sc. in Engineering Geology and Geotechnics, Hanoi University of Mining and Geology

RESEARCH

·      Investigating geochronology and geochemistry of late Cenozoic volcanism in Asia, implications for mantle dynamics and tectonic evolutions.

·      Understanding fluid-related metamorphic and magmatic processes in subduction zone, follwed by deciphering chemical differentiation of mantle, slab-mantle interaction and material recyling in the Earth.

·      Understanding chemical and isotopic compositions of mantle and crust, following that understand mantle dynamics, crustal formation processes.
