I have expertise in geoscience and geographic information system and am fascinated by interdisciplinary research projects. I am currently working on

  • Developing the Sparrow software to facilitate the data management and data sharing between geochronology labs;

  • Comparison between computer-generated climate model and real-world temperature data from proxies in the past 22,000 years from a spatial and statistical perspective;

  • Evaluating the age model of Cretaceous period in Macrostrat and creating new stratigraphic columns and polygons in this database;

  • Natural language process on extracting spatiotemporal data of ice-rafted debris from the literature to reconstruct paleoclimate.



My M.S. thesis at Tulsa was on the application of numerical simulations (Finite Element Method) to the study of final geometries of buckling folds embedded in heterogeneous matrices. Over the past years I have also developed my skills in data visualization, visual analytics, and cartographic design, and building interactive web-based maps.
