Name: TaiPing ZHAO (赵太平)
Position: Research Professor
Department: Key Laboratory of Mineral and Metallogeny

My research interests include magmatism and related ore-forming processes. I have been focused on the study of the igneous rocks and related ore deposits in North China Craton and East Qinling-Dabie orogenic belt in the last two decades. The current researches mainly consist of two aspects, major Precambrian geological events and related ore-forming processes on the southern margin of the North China craton, and the petrogenesis and tectonic settings of the Mesozoic granitoids and metallogeney of the associated Mo-Au-Ag-Pb-Zn ore-deposits on the southern margin of the North China Craton.
