About The Author

Xuan-Ce Wang is an associate professor at Curtin University in the School of Earth and Planetary Sciences. His research focus is using isotope and major and trace element geochemistry, together with field geology, petrology, and thermodynamic models, to investigate the origin and evolution of the Earth’s crust and mantle, with particular emphasis on the early Earth and intracontinental geology, and their association with global tectonics, mantle plumes and supercontinent cycles.
