Current Research Interests:
Understanding process and timescale of a variety of geological events by U-series disequilibria.
Studying metal stable isotope fractionation at high temperatures. 
Studying origin and evolution of the continental crust and mantle using experiment petrology and petro-geochemistry
Determining partition coefficients of trace elements among minerals, fluids, and melt

Summary of my work:
I use multiple tools including (but not limited to) experimental petrology, U-series disequilibria, metal stable isotopes, and quantum chemistry to understand how the Earth works in the past and future. Specifically, my work is about partitioning of trace elements between mineral, fluid, and melt, processes and time-scales of magmatism in subduction zone using U-series disequilibria, and mechanisms for fractionation metal stable isotopes at high pressure by combining experimental petrology and first-principle calculations with high-precision isotope analyses technique.
