  • B.S. Geophysics - Wuhan University

I completed my Ph.D. in 2018 and moved on to work for a software firm in San Francisco.

My research interests at Illinois focused on mantle convection, lithosphere deformation and the relation between surface geology and deep earth processes. My Ph.D. project focused on the origin of Volcanism in the Pacific Northwest region of the USA. I am using the adjoint method to investigate the evolution of mantle beneath U.S. and the origin of the volcanism.
