Teacher Name

Liang Wentian, male, born in 1981, with doctoral degree, associate professor. From 1999 to 2003, he studied in the school of Geosciences of Jilin University, and obtained the bachelor's degree of Engineering in mineral exploration and general survey. From 2003 to 2009, he studied in the Department of geology of Northwest University, and obtained the doctor's degree of Science in structural geology. In the same year, he stayed in school and worked. From 2010 to 2011, he did postdoctoral research in Graz University, Austria. At present, it is mainly responsible for the teaching and related scientific research of structural geology, more than 10 National Natural Science Funds and various provincial and ministerial funds, and its main research direction is regional structure and orogenic belt. It includes three research interests: (1) rock strain and rock fabric; (2) formation and evolution of granite; (3) basin mountain coupling and surface process.

The research work currently being carried out mainly includes the following: (1) the relationship between granite structure and orogeny in Qinling Mountains orogenic belt (National Natural Science Foundation of China, 2017-2020); (2) the formation and evolution of Mesozoic Cenozoic sedimentary basins in the Qinghai Tibet Plateau and its periphery (funding for knowledge innovation engineering cooperation of the Academy of Sciences, 2015-2017); (3) the North-South structure of the Chinese mainland. Key structural events of belt making (NSFC innovation group project support, 2015-2020); (4) deformation of the Central Orogenic Belt high-pressure ultrahigh pressure metamorphic belt (State Key Laboratory of continental dynamics special research funding, 2017-2019).

Welcome interested teachers to carry out cooperative research together, and welcome undergraduates and postgraduates to join the research team! Our main working areas are in Shaanxi, Gansu, Qinghai, Tibet, Sichuan, Guizhou and Yunnan. Join us to enjoy the great scenery of the southwest of China!
