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.Back to top
