PRISMS comprises a team of international researchers with a wide array of expertise that they bring to bear on our collaborative research. If you want to learn more simply click on the researcher's portrait and you will be taken to their personal webpage.
Dr. Sebastien Castelltort is professor in the Section for Earth and Environmental Sciences, University of Geneva, Switzerland. His expertise are in sedimentology, stratigraphy, earth surface processes, source-to-sink, and paleoclimate.
Dr. Andrew Tien-Shun Lin is a professor in the Department of Earth Sciences and the Director of the Carbon Storage and Geothermal Research Center, National Central University, Taiwan. His expertise is in sedimentology, stratigraphy, subsurface geology and marine geology.
Dr. Jeroen Groeneveld is an Associate Professor at the Institute of Oceanography, National Taiwan University, Taiwan. His expertise is in using inorganic geochemistry, i.e. trace metals and stable isotopes, on marine microfossils to reconstruct changes in paleoceanography and paleoclimatology.
Dr. Sze Ling Ho is an assistant professor in the Inst. of Oceanography, National Taiwan University, Taiwan. Her specializations are in paleoceanography, paleoclimate and marine biogeochemistry. She also serves as an external editor for Nature journal Communications Earth & Environment.
Dr. Ludvig Löwemark is a professor in the Dpt. of Geosciences, National Taiwan University, Taiwan. His expertise are in sediment geochemistry, paleoclimatology and ichnology. Ludvig is also the SEPM Ambassador to Taiwan.
Dr. Pei-Ling Wang is an associate professor in the Inst. of Oceanography, National Taiwan University, Taiwan. Her expertise are in biogeochemistry, stable isotope geochemistry, and geomicrobiology.
Student and Associate Members
Mr. Chao Ming Chuang is a sedimentologist currently working in the Central Geological Survey of the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Taiwan. He is also a PhD candidate at the Department of Earth Sciences, National Central University, Taiwan. His PhD research is to reveal the sedimentary facies and climatic signals in the Pliocene-Pleistocene foreland basin deposits in SW Taiwan.
Ms. Amy Hsieh is a cotutelle-PhD candidate working jointly between the Department of Earth Sciences at Simon Fraser University, Canada and the Department of Geosciences at National Taiwan University, Taiwan. The purpose of her research is to understand the impact of past climate oscillations on tropical cyclones and identifying geochemical and/or sedimentological proxies that most accurately record orbital forcing influences using shallow-marine sedimentary archives of the Pliocene Kueichulin Formation in Taiwan
Romy Ari Setiaji
PhD Student Member
Mr. Romy Ari Setiaji is a Ph.D. student of Taiwan International Graduate Program Earth System Science (TIGP-ESS) Academia Sinica - National Taiwan University. His project is focused on revealing paleoclimate records in Miocene-Pleistocene deposits in the Western Foreland Basin, Taiwan.
