Chiang, Hong-Wei姜宏偉

Postdoctoral Research Fellow

Research Interests

To study paleoclimate and environmental changes using stable isotopes on carbonates, such as corals and speleothems.

To reconstruct paleoclimatic, paleoseismic events and tectonic activities by U-Th dating.

(Multi-collector inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry)。 To develop new approaches and proxies to broaden current understanding of paleoclimate, particularly by MC-ICP-MS.
