Research Interests
My research interests mainly cover three broad areas, with focus on past global changes on both regional and global scales.
(1) Evolution of Global Meridional Ocean Circulation and its effect on climates at a range of timescales
(2) Tracing terrigenous components in marine sediments and its linkages to tectonic,climate and sea level
(3) Early diagenetic processes in marine sediments Research Projects
