I have graduated a PhD student, a master student, and several undergraduate students (with senior thesis). I am actively involving motivated undergraduate and high school students into my research activities.


I study the elemental and isotopic compositions of basalts, peridotites, meteorites, and samples returned by NASA missions, and use them to understand the origins and the evolution of the solid Earth and the early Solar System.
