1、 Personal profile
Born in 1987, Professor of Northwest University, Huining, Gansu Province. In 2010, he graduated from the Department of Geosciences of Nanjing University with a Bachelor of Science degree; 2010
-In 2016, he was a Ph.D. student in structural geology of Nanjing University, and received a Ph.D. degree in Science in June 2016 (under the guidance of Professor Shu Liangshu and Professor Zhao Guochun). In 2015, he went to the University of St Andrews to study (Peter
Professor Cawood). In 2016, he was supported by the Xiangjiang scholars program. From January 2017 to January 2019, he carried out postdoctoral research in Hong Kong University (co Tutor: Professor Zhao Guochun). Since April 2019, Northwestern University has taught.
