My recent research focuses on the Precambrian geology of the North China Craton. I use state-of-the-art geochronological and geochemical techniques to decipher Precambrian magmatism and metamorphism in the North China Craton, and to better understand the properties and evolutions of Earth’s different layers and the geodynamic regime operating during the early history of the Earth.
