I am a Visiting Research Fellow at the School of Earth & Environment. I have been an Associate Professor in Geophysics at the Chinese Academy of Geological Sciences since 2017. From 2020 to 2022, I was a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Macau University of Science and Technology. My research interests are geophysical gravity and magnetic methods, especially, numerical methods, inversions, and ore-deposit and tectonic geophysical interpretations.

Research interests

My interests mainly include:

Gravity and magnetic inversion methods.
