Research interests

1. Development and application of the denudation proxy 10Be (meteoric)/9Be ratio in Earth surface processes

2. Denudation processes and sediment source-to-sink processes in small mountainous rivers of Taiwan Island

3. Application of Be isotopes in land-sea boundaries: implication for beryllium cycling in the marginal seas (to be done).
