 I am a NERC Research Fellow focusing on ‘Novel Multi-Scale 3D/4D Characterization of Pore Networks in Tight Rocks’ since the beginning of 2018. Before this, I was a Research Associate at the University of Manchester in 4D fracture imaging in shales from 2016 to 2017.  

I was awarded the PhD degree at the University of Manchester in multi-scale 3D imaging of microstructures in shales in 2016, and gained the MSc and BSc degrees in Jilin University in China at 2012 and 2009 respectively.

My current research aims to build novel and advanced 3D/4D digital approaches to fully understand the complicated pore networks in tight rocks across multiple scales (nm to cm). This will achieve the goal of enabling economic growth and environment protection via applications of clean gas extraction and safe carbon storage.
