Xiaowei Zheng starts her PhD in Lithosphere organic carbon (LOC) group in the Department of Geoscience from December.
Her previous research was mainly about shale reservoir and tight sandstone reservoir, with expertise in pore structure analysis, mineralogy and diagenesis research. She will continue her research on the Alum shale, especially in the organic petrology and geochemistry, during her PhD. A comprehensive comparative work between the Fuling shale and the Alum shale will also be made.
