Research Profile

    Professor YANG Yongtai worked at Research Institute of Petroleum Exploration and Development of China from 1996 to 2003, during which he was in charge of or participated in several projects involving basin analysis and petroleum geology in Chinese basins. He received his PhD from the University of Toronto in Canada in 2008 under the supervision of Andrew Miall and his ph.d. research was focused on the evolution and subsidence mechanisms of the northern Cordilleran foreland basin during the mid-Cretaceous.  From 2008 to 2010, he worked as a postdoc at the University College Dublin, Ireland, and studied the Jurassic-Lower Cretaceous tectono-stratigraphy of the conjugate North Atlantic margins. Since 2011, he has become a faculty member of the University of Science and Technology of China. His research interests are Mesozoic basin evolution and plate tectonics in Central and East Asia. He is an Associate Editor of the Marine and Petroleum Geology.
