Expertise & Interests

Overview / specialty        Most of my research focuses on understanding glacio-isostatic adjustment (GIA), which is a geophysical process between solid earth-ocean-ice sheets during glacial cycles.

In particular, I am interested in the 'missing ice' problem, which is largely associated with the poorly-constrained Antarctic deglaciation history during the last deglaciation (from the Last Glacial Maximum, LGM, ~21,000 years BP to present). Current estimations of Antarctic Ice Sheet's contribution to post-LGM global sea-level rise is ranging from ~5 to ~30 m, which largely hinders our understanding of Measurement of current Antarctic mass balance, Antarctic ice sheet's sustainability to the changing climate and future sea-level projection.
