His research focuses on applying petrology, geochronology and geochemistry to understand the continental crustal and tectonic evolution of mountain belts, in particular processes associated with subduction zone metamorphism, ophiolite formation and magmatic petrogenesis in western China. He has also worked on continental reconstructions, specifically the Neoproterozoic-Paleozoic palaeogeography and plate tectonics. He has worked mainly in the Central Asia Orogen and Tibetan Plateau regions.
