Prof. Zhou, Mei-Fu


Mei-Fu Zhou is Professor of Earth Sciences at The University of Hong Kong where he teaches Principle Geology, Economic Geology, Advanced Geochemistry and Geological Heritage of Hong Kong since 1996. His research interests include ophiolites, large igneous provinces and mineral deposits. In the 1990’s, Zhou worked on komatiites in Zimbabwe, podiform chromite deposits in Tibet and the Sudbury Ni-sulfide deposit in Canada. His recent researches focus on the tectonic evolution and mineral deposits of South China and surrounding regions.
