I am a palynologist, specializing in Mesozoic spores and pollen fossils. My research is primarily focused on vegetation changes and climate variations across the Triassic-Jurassic boundary, which is one of the five largest Phanerozoic mass extinction events and characterized by a major turnover in biotas. By studying fossil spores and pollen combining with geochemistry for the Triassic-Jurassic sequences, palaeovegetation changes can be reconstructed, and the palaeoclimate variations can be indicated, terrestrial ecosystem crisis can thus be understood. For now, this work concentrate mainly on Triassic-Jurassic sequences from the Sichuan Basin, southern China.
My research is presently supported by the National Science Foundation of China.
