Dr. Weimin Feng,PhD, Assistant Professor of Geosciences, PhD in Geology from Southern Methodist University. Teaches Landforms, Geohazards, Geochemistry, Geostatistics, and Mineralogy.
My research interests are paleoclimate models. My research aims to acquire new terrestrial paleoclimate records, develop new paleoclimate proxies, and calibrate existing ones. I use isotope tools to study materials formed in the low-temperature, near surface environments such as paleosols and speleothems.
