Name: Yongqiang XIONG (熊永强)
Position: Research Professor
Department: State Key Laboratory of Organic Geochemistry


My research interests are mainly in the application of molecular and isotopic compositions of hydrocarbons to study origins and alterations of crude oil and natural gas. The current projects include the quantitative characterization of highly mature hydrocarbon source, and the development of novel methods and technologies for surface geochemical prospecting of petroleum.
