: Bin HE(何斌)
Position: Research Professor
Department: State Key Laboratory of Isotope Geochemistry


I am working on two aspects: (1) the temporal relationship between mass extincations (end-Guadalupian or Guadalupian-Lopingian Boundary and Permian-Triassic Boundary) and volcanisms (The Emeishan Large Igneous Province and the Tethy Permian-Triassic Boundary felsic volcanic ashes), (2) the genetic relationship between magmatism, metamorphism and deformation in Mesozoic in the east of China, using mineralogical, petrological and geochemical tools.

My current projects include (1) nature and source of volcanic ashes and claystones in Permian of South China, (2) ductile deformation including gneiss domes and basin evolution in the east of China including Western hills in Beijing, Hongzhen in Anhui, Lushan in Jiangxi and Dongguan in Guangdong
