Associate Professor Department of Earth and Space Sciences
I work on Geodynamics with the aim of unifying patchy observations from different subjects with basic physical and chemical theories and providing spatially- and temporally- continuous scenarios of Earth’s evolution.
Geodynamics aims at unifying patchy observations from different subjects with basic physical and chemical theories and providing spatially- and temporally- continuous scenarios of Earth’s evolution. To achieve a better understanding of Earth’s dynamics, I’m interested in two aspects at present. One is constraining the material properties, state and evolution history of the Earth’s mantle and lithosphere; the other is providing possible qualitative and quantitative predictions with geodynamic models and simulations. New observations will enable us to test, update, or rebuild the geodynamic models.
Fundamentals of Geodynamics (48 hours)
During this course, the lecturer will first introduce the basic research strategies and methods of Geodynamics. Following that, the lecturer will briefly introduce the internal structure, thermal state, and shape and gravity field of the Earth. Several important geodynamic models, including plate tectonics, mantle hot plume, mantle convection, lithospheric flexure, faulting will also be introduced during this course.
