My research interests fall into planetary geology and geomorphology. Instead of studying planets directly, I explore terrestrial analogs of Mars - sites on Earth that resemble Mars on the aspects of morphology, composition, environments, etc. I use remote sensing and various mineralogy characterization methods to understand geological processes in terrestrial analogs and provide implications for how to interpret their counterparts on Mars. My previous work focused on geomorphological analogs of Mars in the Qaidam Basin, northwestern China. I’m currently working on hydrothermal minerals.
