Associate Professor

Department of Earth and Space Sciences


Room 406A, Building 9, Innovation Park

Dr. Jing received a B.S. in 2000 and a M.S. in 2003, both in Geophysics at Peking University. He then earned his Ph.D. in 2010 in Geophysics at Yale University. After graduate school, he was a Postdoctoral Scholar in the Center for Advanced Radiation Sources, the University of Chicago, before starting as an Assistant Professor in 2013 in the Department of Earth, Environmental, and Planetary Sciences at Case Western Reserve University. In July 2018, he joined the Department of Earth and Space Sciences at Southern University of Science and Technology as an Associate Professor. Dr. Jing studies the physical and chemical properties of Earth and planetary materials under planetary mantle and core conditions and apply these material properties to understanding the structure, composition, and dynamics of Earth and planetary interiors. He conducts high-pressure and high-temperature experiments in large-volume hydraulic presses in his lab and at synchrotron X-ray facilities. His current research focuses on determining the density and sound velocity of silicate melts, iron-alloying liquids, lower-mantle minerals, and subducting slab materials at high pressures through a range of experimental and theoretical approaches.
