Education

  • 2014/09 ~ present PhD in progress, Colorado School of Mines, Golden, Colorado, USA. Thesis topic: Stratigraphic Architecture and Depositional Environments of an Early Foreland Basin Source-to-Sink System: the Pennsylvanian Atoka Formation, Arkansas.
  • 2011/09 ~ 2014/07 MSc, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, BC, Canada. Thesis topic: Sinemurian (Early Jurassic) stratigraphy at Last Creek, British Columbia and Five Card Draw, Nevada: paleontology and environmental implications.
  • 2009/09 ~ 2012/07 MSc, China University of Petroleum, Beijing, China.
  • 2005/09 ~ 2009/07 BSc, China University of Geosciences, Beijing, China.

Research

  • My research interests focus on the stratigraphy and sedimentology of marine environments, and the related geological, physical, chemical and biological processes, including four main parts:
  • 1. Siliciclastic depositional systems especially in deepwater settings;
  • 2. Trace fossils in marine stratigraphic record;
  • 3. Ammonoid biostratigraphy and paleo-biogeography;
  • 4. Stable isotope geochemistry, and its applications in interpreting depositional environments.
  • Part 1 and 2 are the current focus of my PhD study at CSM. Part 3 and 4 are the main focus of my MSc work at UBC.

Interests

  • Bicycle touring, mechanics, and culture
