Welcome! This is a personal website created and maintained by Meng Tian, Ph.D. candidate at the Department of Geology and Geophysics, Yale University. You will find here my research interests, highlights, and some of my professional activities.
My research centers on metamorphic fluids, both the physics of fluid flow and the chemistry of fluid-rock interactions. To resolve fundamental questions regarding mass (especially carbon) and heat transfer during metamorphic fluid flow, porous flow patterns, and deep fluid compositions, I adopt approaches from field geology and geophysical fluid dynamics. You can find more in the RESEARCH section of this website.
I am broadly interested in petrology, geochemistry, geodynamics, and relevant scientific computing. My advisory committee is accordingly interdisciplinary: Prof. Jay Ague is my advisor. Prof. David Bercovici, Prof. Jun Korenaga, Prof. Danny Rye provide me with perspectives from geodynamics and geochemistry.
