Main Field of research and Principal Research Interests
Geology and health, environmental science, Stratigraphy and Paleontology; trace elements evolution in the Earth history;
Study focus
1) study on distribution pattern and evolution of Se, As, F and other trace elements and their bio-effects during the Earth history, the evolution of elements, especial the trace elements and life elements evolution during the Earth history, proposed to explain the genesis for the mass extinction and the big changed of organisms (such as Cambrian exploding and other big changed of biological events, P/T and K/T mass extinction) in the earth historical course. Recently, study focuses the content and distribution pattern of selenium, arsenic across the Ediacaran to Cambrian interval;
2) Study on the regional geological characteristic influencing trace element concentrations in soil, groundwater and plant; study the relation of trace elements distribution in the strata, bedrock and the region differentiation of elements in earth's surface environment and relation to human health. Such as study on geological background of Yunnan Sudden Death; source of As, Se, and fluorine in drinking water in the fluorosis areas; study the distribution of fluorine and arsenic in bedrock, coal, strata and soil in earth surface and their health effects.
