Professor, doctoral director, winner of National Science Foundation for Distinguished Young Scholars.

The acquisition of high-precision analytical data is an important prerequisite for high-quality geochemical research. In situ microanalysis is one of the main directions of the development of Geochemistry and chemical geodynamics. Laser ablation technology is an important support technology for in-situ microelement abundance and isotopic composition analysis. I am mainly engaged in the development of this technology and its application in Geoscience, and I have made important innovations in the research and application of in-situ analysis technology based on laser denudation micro area, such as accurate analysis of trace element content in whole rocks and minerals, zircon U-Pb dating / trace element / Lu Hf isotope, sulfide s, Pb isotope composition, etc.
