Researcher biography

Dr. Deng's research is focused on better understanding the evolution of the Earth's environment by the application of isotope and element geochemical methods. He has made innovative contributions and achievements in seasonal, annual, decadal, centennial and millennial time scales climate changes over the South China Sea-West Pacific regions during the Holocene and new geochemical analytical methodology development in coral-based paleoclimatic research. His recent interests and studies focus on non-traditional stable isotopes (Ca, Mg, Sr, Cu, Zn, Mo, Δ47, etc.) in coral skeletons. Dr. Deng has over 15 years of experience in running and maintenance of stable isotope ratio mass spectrometer (IRMS), inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometry (ICP-AES) and other geochemical analysis instruments.
