Fields of interest:

  • My main research interest is in understanding basaltic magmatism that takes place at various tectonic settings
    (i.e., mid-oceanic ridges, back-arc basins, oceanic hot spots, and island
    arcs). 
  • Also, I investigate petrological and geochemical characteristics of sediments in order to reveal their
    provenances.
