Chu, Xu (初旭)

Welcome to my site! I am a postdoctoral research associate in the Department of Earth Science at Rice University. I work with Prof. Cin-Ty Lee and Prof. Rajdeep Dasgupta on decarbonation at continental arcs and subducion zones, to understand the geological driving forces of the long-term climate change.

I will join the faculty of Department of Earth Sciences in the University of Toronto on January 1st, 2018. 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.

I have a long-standing research interest in developing petrological thermo-dynamics and kinetics. I combine the modeling tools with field geology and geochemistry, to understand the histories recorded in natural rocks and the tectonic evolution of orogenic belts.
