Current Research InterestsMy research interest focuses on the composition and evolution of the continental crust, mantle heterogeneity and the origin and evolution of the solar system. To address these questions, I study both terrestrial and extra-terrestrial materials through analyses of non-traditional stable isotopes (e.g., lithium, magnesium, calcium, iron, zinc, copper etc.) and radiogenic isotopes produced by the decay of short-lived nuclides (e.g., 26Al). My research techniques involve both purification of targeted elements through column chromatography in a clean sample preparation laboratory and high-precision isotopic analyses using High Resolution Multi-Collector Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (HR-MC-ICPMS).
Examples of project include:
• Formation and differentiation of the Moon, Mars and other extraterrestrial bodies by studying isotopic compositions of lunar samples, Martian meteorites, chondrites and achondrites.
• Composition, differentiation and evolution of the bulk Earth/ major reservoirs through studies of isotopic compositions of peridotites, komatiites, basalts, arc lavas, granites and seawater.
• Global elemental cycling among hydrosphere, crust and mantle through isotopic studies of river water, sedimentary rocks, weathering profiles, seafloor alteration and metamorphic rocks.
• Geothermometry and geospeedometry through studies of equilibrium and kinetic isotope fractionation in igneous & metamorphic minerals, theoretical predications and lab experiments.
• Paleoceanography and paleoclimate through isotopic and elemental studies of coral samples, speleothem, loess and lake sediments.
• Studies of isotope fractionation during biogenic processes through laboratory experiments and by using natural samples
