Research Interests:
  • Paleointensity and Geodynamo: Experimentally document paleointensity variations over the geological history, in particular, the Cretaceous Normal Superchron (CNS) from volcanic rocks. 
  • Geomagnetic Polarity Transitions and Geodynamo: Experimentally retrieve the Matuyama-Brunhes polarity transition and other transitions by high-resolution paleomagnetic investigations on sequences of the Chinese loess and lake sediments. 
  • Magnetostratigraphic Dating: Magnetically date the Paleolithic sites throughout China, especially in the Nihewan Basin and Sanmen Lake Basin in northern China and the Yuanmou Basin in southwestern China. 
  • Craton Evolution: Study global craton evolution, especially for the North China Craton and its decratonization processes during the late Mesozoic.  
  • Global Tectonics: Study global continental tectonics, especially Tethys orogenic belt. 
  • Instrument Development: Set up a comprehensive and state-of-the-art laboratory, Paleomagnetism and Geochronology Laboratory (PGL), incorporated paleomagnetism, rock magnetism and geochronology (40Ar/39Ar dating).
