After two years of postdoc training at Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University, she joined HKU in the spring of 2011. Dr. Chang is a geologist specializing in geochronology. Her research mainly uses 40Ar/39Ar and U/Pb methods to constrain the time scale of biological evolution, mass extinction events, and volcanic events.
