Guangliang was a Graduate Research Assitant at UTIG while he was a graduate student. He received a PhD in 2016. Guangliang ‘s research focused on geodynamics, tectonics and structural geology, coupling theoretical analysis, numerical simulations and geological/geophysical data. He finished a project on the continental extension in orogenic belts and continental margins that leads to most extensional structures on the Earth, such as rift basins, continental margins, core complexes, and detachment faults. Currently Guangliang is working on the tectonic evolution of South China Sea and on the rheology and evolution of shear zone.
