Professor and Head
Research interests My research interests cover a wide range of disciplines including sedimentology ,hydrogeology, petrology, stratigraphy (lithostratigraphy and sequence stratigraphy), plate tectonic and petroleum geology. My academic research was rooted in sedimentology, including clastic and carbonate sedimentary petrology, petrography, sedimentary facies analysis, depositional environments and depositional sedimentation system. My first research project involved the Ordovician-Silurian carbonate sedimentology (Thesis title:-Lithosratigraphy and Carbonate Microfacies of the area, East of Ye-U, Ywa-ngan township,Southern Shan State) as my Master Thesis. My PhD research analysed the sedimentation system of Jurassic turbidites (Thesis title:-Sedimentology of the Loi-an Group in the western margin of the Shan Plateau, Thazi and Kalaw townships). I am also attempting to better understand the fossil fuel, petroleum, found in geological formations beneath the Earth’surface. A better understanding of naturally occurring fossil fuel may provide important clues as to hydrocarbon source regions and also aid in predicting the presence or absence of oil and gas reserves.
