Hui Li

Hui Li graduated in CUG (China University of Geosciences, Wuhan) with a degree in Geology in 2012. Her bachelor thesis was focused on the study of lycopod megaspores from the Early Triassic strata in South China. Following this, she started a Master-doctor continuous study (two years for master, three years for PhD, without master degree) in CUG. Her major is Palaeontology and Stratigraphy. She participated in several research projects about the Permian-Triassic fossil plants and boundaries of terrestrial and terrestrial-marine transitional facies in Western Guizhou and Eastern Yunnan. In addition, she learned palynology from some Tertiary and Quaternary geological survey projects.

Currently, she is in the second year of PhD and as a visit student of UCD for six months. Her research is focused on the quantitative reconstruction of paleoatmospheric CO2 concentration and paleoclimate during the Permian-Triassic period in South China, by using the stomatal proxy method on fossil leaf cuticles and parameters of leaf physiognomy. The aim is to provide more information to the Permian-Triassic mass extinction event.
