Name: Xiaolin XIONG (熊小林)
Position: Research Professor
Department: State Key Laboratory of Isotope Geochemistry


Xiaolin’s research interests include igneous petrology and trace element geochemistry during igneous processes, with a specific interest in experimental studies on natural and synthetic rock systems under P-T conditions of crust to upper mantle. Xiaolin is presently working on melting of subducted slab (basaltic crust) and mantle metasomatism of slab-derived melts with particular interest in trace element partitioning between minerals (silicates, oxides and sulfide) and felsic melt during melting of the subducted basaltic crust. Related experimental studies on trace elements (Cu, Mo, W, Sn, Nb & Ta) partitioning between silicate minerals, oxides, sulfide and silicate melt are in progress.
