Research: 

My research activities include studies of ore deposits genesis and their application to mineral exploration. My interest covers a range of deposit types, such as iron oxide copper-gold (IOCG), porphyry-epithermal Cu-Au and orogenic gold deposits, mainly in the Central Asia Orogenic Belt in northwest China, and the Peruvian-Chilean Andean region in South America.
