Research

My research is conducted at the petrology, geochemistry and metallogeny, particularly in Cu-Fe and REE mineralization mechanisms. I am interested in the research field of fluid and melt inclusion, and their theory and application in ore-forming systems and magmatic-hydrothermal systems. Current projects include Paleozoic igneous and its related Cu-Fe deposit in northern Xinjiang, shoshonites associated with Cu-Au mineralization in Awulale Mountains, and highly evolved rare metal deposit in Inner Mongolia.
