Mr Wenhao Wang

Personal profile

I am a postdoctoral research associate at Department of Earth Sciences, Royal Holloway University of London, working for NERC-funded project 'Rhenium isotopes to track carbon dioxide emissions by oxidative weathering'. 

Educational background

BSc: Oceanographic Science, 2014, Nanjing University; MPhil: Marine Environmental Science, 2016, The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology; PhD: Ocean and Earth Science, 2020, University of Southampton.

Research interests

The overarching aim of my research is to capitalize on recent methodological and instrumental developments to better understand the cycling of metals (rhenium, iron, chromium) in the oceanic environment and in the solid earth, through the analysis of non-traditional stable isotopes.

I am also interested in: (1) hydrothermal vent chemistry on slow-spreading ridges; (2) provenance of metal inputs to the North Atlantic Ocean; (3) biogeochemical cycling and redox processes; and (4) the links between weathering, ocean chemistry and climate change.


I have been involved in the mentoring team of FutureLearn (MOOC) online course 'Exploring our Oceans' since 2017, by communicating with and engaging the interest and enthusiasm of thousands of learners from a diversity of backgrounds from all around the world.
