Dr. Zhang, Yunying 

Postdoctoral Fellow

I received my PhD in Geochemistry from Guangzhou Institute of Geochemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2015. My research interest is using petrology, geochronology and geochemistry tools to decode the tectonic evolution of the Central Asian Orogenic Belt (CAOB), which covers a huge area between Tarim-North China and Siberian Cratons and represents the most important site of Phanerozoic crustal growth. I am also interested in the fractionation of non-traditional stable isotopes (e.g., Mo and B) in subduction zones
