We are pleased to announce the addition of Dr. Majie Fan, Assistant Professor of Geosciences, University of Texas at Arlington, as an Affiliated Faculty to the UTD Permian Basin Research Lab.  Majie has extensive experience studying orogen formation and paleoclimate change and is currently assisting us to better understanding tectonic and magmatic events and Permian sediment provenance of the Permian Basin.  She was a key contributor and co-author of our 2020 Spraberry detrital zircon paper and she and her current Ph.D. student (Hepeng Tian) have been studying Permian ash beds in the Midland Basin, with two manuscripts currently in press.

Welcome, Majie!  We are very pleased to add your expertise to the UTD-PBRL, and look forward to continued collaboration.
