    Research Interests

    1. Subduction zone metamorphic rocks, with special attention on fluid activity and element behavior during subduction zone metamorphism, and protolith nature of the HP/UHP metamorphic rocks

    2. Water in hydrous and nominally anhydrous minerals

    3. Metamorphic Zirconology

    4. Stable isotope geochemistry
