Research Interests

One, applications of XRF in integrated studies for paleoenviroment, ocean paleoredox conditions, lithology trends, and petrophysics. 

Two, applications of compositional data analysis and wavelet analysis to objectively analyze geologic data (like XRF data or well logs) for sequences boundaries, cyclicity and stratigraphic features. Also interested in applications of compositonal data analysis in geologic problems in general.
