Sedimentology, Stable Isotope Geochemistry, Carbon Cycle, Marine Geology, Paleoclimatology and Paleoceanography
I am currently working on deep marine sediments to understand what impact climate changes (especially through Eocene) had on ocean floor sedimentation. My other interest is to tie up these deep ocean sedimentary dynamics with changes in deposition pattern in shallow marine setting in times of extreme warmth, like PETM and early Eocene Hyperthermals.

volcanism, Hawaii, two-phase flow, bubbles, solubility, numerical modeling, deformation
My thesis focused on how magma is transported from depth to the surface at Kilauea Volcano, Hawaii. A great natural laboratory for this is Hawaii, where a long-lived eruption is ongoing (1983-present).

seismology, near-surface geophysics
Maximum likelihood framework time-domain full-waveform inversion
Magmatism-tectonism-climate interaction, evolutions of continents
I am interested in the structures and evolutions of continental arcs and how the geological processes (e.g. magmatism, tectonism, erosion) contribute to the formation of continents and their impacts on global climate.

Experimental Petrology, Geochemistry, Igneous processes, sulfur in subduction zone
I am interested in Earth's deep sulfur cycle, the fate of sulfur at subduction zones and deep mantle processes that constrain the stability and mobility of sulfur and it's phases in our planet.

Petrology, Metamorphism, Thermodyanmics, Decarbonation
I have a long-standing research interest in developing petrological thermodynamics and kinetics. I combine the modeling tools with field geology and geochemistry, to understand the histories recorded in natural rocks and the tectonic evolution of orogenic belts.
