Resume:

  The primary focus of my research is the geochemical palaeo-environment during the Permian-Triassic transition, particularly under the applications of stable C-isotope and molecular organic geochemistry. My researches are to discriminate the associations of carbon-cycle anomalies with marine euxinia and volcanic eruptions in Siberia or in southern China around the end-Permian mass extinction event, and also try to geochemically correlate the marine C-isotopic anomalies with that recorded in the terrestrial ecosystems across the Permian-Triassic transition. In recent years, my researching field has been extended to the Middle Permian (from Guadalupian to Lopingian Stage) marine strata in southern China, especially on the investigations of C-isotopic excursions, sedimentary sequences, and lipid biomarker evidence. This research is trying to recover a long-term environmental evolution over 8 Ma before and after the Emeishan Basalt Eruptions around southern China.
