My primary research interest is aqueous geochemistry in seafloor hydrothermal system. I am competent in analyzing hydrothermal fluids for organic and inorganic geochemistry, and water-rock related processes simulation. During my PhD project, I will conduct experiments to deepen our understanding on abiotic production of organic carbons in seafloor hydrothermal system as a part of NFR project, called “HyPOD”. This study will provide insights about source and sink of organic molecules, particularly methanol, methanethiol, and thioester, in seafloor hydrothermal system as well as the implications to deep-sea microbial communities, early-life on earth, and life searching mission on other solar system worlds.
