I'm a first year PhD student in professor Jay Bass's mineral physics group. I'm interested in understanding phase transition of minerals under deep Earth conditions. This can be achieved by using laser spectroscopic techniques and high pressure & temperature apparatuses, notably diamond anvil cell and laser heating. Through this method, I hope to get a better knowledge of minerals on Earth and what is happening in the Earth's interior.
