Research interests

Mediterranean anoxic events and sapropel formation, and the associated paleo-oceanographic and -climatic processes: precessional control of African monsoon precipitation and associated sources and fluxes of terrigenous detrital inputs (freshwater and nutrients); changes in systematics of seawater thermohaline circulation and the impacts on the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation; redox related changes across seawater/sediment interfaces, and early diagenetic alteration of proxies.

Weathering and alteration of Eocene–Oligocene basalts at the South China Sea rifted margin: hydrothermal alternation and weathering processes of basalts from geochemical and mineralogical perspectives, as well as the influences of its weathered products on the provenance of the northern South China Sea.

Paleoceanography of the Western Pacific tropics from geochemical and sedimentological perspectives: precession-dominated tropical precipitation and associated river runoffs; sources, distribution, and fluxes of iron-rich deposition in the equatorial Pacific and iron biogeochemistry; and the source-to-sink processes of the terrigenous detrital materials.
