Chu, Xu (初旭)

Welcome to my site! I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Earth Sciences at the University of TorontoI have a long-standing research interest in developing petrological thermodynamics and kinetics. I combine the modeling tools with field geology and geochemistry, to decipher the histories recorded in natural rocks and the tectonic evolution of orogenic belts. My current projects focus on decarbonation at continental arcs and subducion zones, to understand the geological driving forces of the long-term climate change.

 If you are interested in hard-rock petrology and a Ph.D. or Masters degree in the University of Toronto, I am more than happy to talk with you.
