Dr. Li, Jianhua

Postdoctoral Fellow

Dr. Jianhua Li obtained his Bachelor degree from Central South University in 2007 and his PhD degree from Chinese Academy of Geological Sciences (CAGS) in 2013. He is currently an associate professor in the Institute of Geomechanics, CAGS and a Hong Kong Scholar at HKU. His research interest mainly focuses on structural geology and tectonics, particularly concerning Phanerozoic intra-continental deformation and tectonic evolution of South China. These studies generally integrate field structural observations with microstructural analyses, geochronological and thermochronological data, to constrain the geometries, kinematics and time of structures and their linkages with regional tectonics and geodynamic processes.
