Postdoctoral Fellow

My research focuses on the volcanological and geological processes on the Moon and other terrestrial planets, based on the in situ/remote sensing data and extraterrestrial samples obtained by China and other nations. I also have interest in planetary explorations especially those missions organized by China to the Moon, Mars, and beyond.
