Dr. Hao, Jihua (郝记华 博士)

I am a postdoctoral researcher, working mainly with Profs. Nathan Yee and Paul Falkowski on the habitability, origin, and early evolution of life on the early Earth or other water-bearing planets. I got my PhD of Geochemistry with Prof. Dimitri A. Sverjensky at Dept. Earth & Planetary Sciences, Johns Hopkins University in November, 2016 (degree awarded in May, 2017). During my PhD, I also worked closely with Dr. Robert M. Hazen as the predoctoral mentor at Geophysical Laboratory, Carnegie Institution of Washington (GL-CIW). After graduation, I went to France as postdoctoral researcher (2016/12 - 2019/08), working with Prof. Isabelle Daniel at Laboratoire de géologie de Lyon, Université Claude Bernard Lyon1 and École normale supérieure de Lyon.

I have broad research interests, including early Earth surface geochemistry, origin and evolution of life on Earth, habitability of life on other water-bearing planets, and aqueous geochemistry at elevated temperatures and pressures. I like playing ping-pong, swimming, backpacking, and cooking.
