Research Interests
(1) The biogeochemical processes in modern ocean (e.g. marine sediment, cold seep and hydrothermal system) and their isotopic effects (e.g. carbon, sulfur, and chromium);
(2) The ocean redox conditions in the critical periods of the earth history (e.g. Ediacaran and Cambrian);
(3) The relationship between early ocean condition and life evolution, like the Ediacaran ocean oxygenation and the emergence and diversification of early animals.
