Brief Summary

Dr. Nan Zhang received his Bachelor of Science in seismological geology from Peking University in 2001, a master degree of Earth Science from University of Toronto Canada in 2005, and a PhD on Geophysics and Tectonics from University of Colorado at Boulder in 2011. After then,  he joined in Brown University for a research of lunar evolution for two years. Before he came to Curtin, he did another postdoctoral research at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution for a magma migration project.

Research Interests

His researches mainly focus on 1) the global geodynamics associated with the supercontinent cycles, 2) the lunar and planetary sciences, especially the planetary interiors, and 3) the melt-rock interaction with two-phase flow modelling. He is mainly using numerical methods to tackle with geological problem.
