RESEARCH INTERESTS

My main research goal is to understand the evolution and composition of planetary interiors through high-pressure simulation experiments using piston-cylinder apparatus, multi-anvil devices, diamond-anvil cell, and dynamic compression methods. I also pursue new materials synthesis at high pressure and temperature.

  • Earth and planet evolution
  • Planetary interior processes
  • Compositions of the Earth's mantle and core
  • Physical properties of materials at high P and T
  • Materials synthesis at high pressure
  • Development of high-pressure techniques
