Short bio of speakers: 


Prof. James W HEAD Brown University


Dr James W. Head III is the Louis and Elizabeth Scherck Distinguished Professor at Brown University. He obtained his Bachelor of Science degree from Washington and Lee University in 1964 and PhD from Brown University in 1969. He has been involved in many national and international space missions and received numerous prestigious medals and awards, including the NASA Medal for Exceptional Scientific Achievement and the Geological Society of America Special Commendation for his contributions to the Apollo program from 1968 to 1972. He has published over 700 journal papers (Google Scholar citations: >73,000) and served on the editorial board of numerous journals. He has been elected to Fellowship in the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the American Geophysical Union, the Geological Society of America, and the Meteoritical Society, and President of the Planetary Geology Division of the GSA and Planetology Section of the AGU.


Dr YANG, Wei
Key Laboratory of Earth and Planetary Physics
Institute of Geology and Geophysics, Chinese Academy of Sciences


Dr Wei YANG is currently a Professor of Geochemistry at the Institute of Geology and Geophysics, Chinese Academy of Sciences (IGGCAS). He received BSc (2001) and Ph.D. (2007) degrees in geochemistry from the University of Science and Technology of China. After completing his Ph.D., he came to IGGCAS for post-doctoral research and joined the comparative planetary science group as an Associate Professor in 2011. His main interest in the past decade was Mg isotope geochemistry and its application in tracing the deep carbon cycle. He is currently working on the formation and evolution of the Moon based on the exploration data and return samples of the Chinese Lunar Exploration Program. 


Prof. TANG, Xuhai
Wuhan University


Prof. Xuhai Tang is professor at Wuhan University. He got PhD degree at Imperial College London and was postdoc at Princeton University. Currently, he is the editorial board member of International Journal of Rock Mechanics and Mining Sciences. His group developed the system of Microscale Rock Mechanics Experiment (Micro-RME) and Accurate Grain-Based Model (AGBM), which is able to measure the rock-forming minerals under extreme conditions and determine their influence on the macroscale mechanical property of rocks. This system is especially useful to test the filling materials in fractures and arbitrarily-shaped meteorites. Additionally, his ground developed an Aifrac simulator, to model rock fracturing driven by Hydraulic-Mechanical-Thermal coupling process, such as the shock veins on asteroids. Prof. Tang’s achievement contributes to smarter energy exploitation and space exploration.
