Research Programs


We strive to conduct cutting-edge research at the frontiers of geosciences that ultimately applies to the understanding of the Earth’s environment, climate, and the origin and distribution of its natural resources. We examine geologic processes from the micro/nano-scale to the continental scale on Earth and other planetary bodies.
