I have worked with the EPSCoR scholar, Debbie Morales. She showed enormous enthusiasm about studying the paleoclimate change across critical transitions in Earth history. At the end of the study she presented the results in Geosymposium and the EPSCoR research meeting. The results will be written for a formal publication.


Dr. Jiang received his B.A. in Engineering from Xiangtan Mining College in Hunan, south China. After graduation, he started to work on the stratigraphy and tectonics in north China and received a M.S. in Geology from China University of Geosciences (Beijing). Following graduation, he worked as a lecturer at the China University of Geosciences for five years. He continued his education at Columbia University and completed his Ph.D. in 2002. He worked as postdoctoral associate at the University of California, Riverside from 2002 to 2004. Ganqing joined the Geoscience faculty in August of 2004.
