Mainly engaged in computational mineral physics/geochemistry study, with a particular interest in the deep structures of terrestrial planets.

I have a background in materials science. I completed both my undergraduate and master's degrees in materials science at Shandong University, during which I studied the high-temperature strength of metals. Then, I learned modeling at the Royal Swedish Institute of Technology and Uppsala University, and studied the behavior of copper buried in shallow depth for spent nuclear fuel disposal. After obtaining a PhD in materials science, I went to work in the University College London to study the physical properties of iron under the conditions of the earth's core, and plunged into the earth science. By now, my interests are not limited to the core, but also involve the lower mantle and core-mantle interactions in a wider space and time in the deep part of the earth, and dabble in the deep structure of more distant terrestrial planets.
