Chris Finlay is a senior scientist in the Division of Geomagnetism at DTU Space.  His work focuses on the evolution of Earth's magnetic field on time scales from months to millennia, from both observational and theoretical perspectives.  He has a Masters degree in Physics from the University of Oxford, UK and a PhD in Geophysics from the University of Leeds, UK.  He worked for 5 years as a post-doctoral researcher and then as an oberassistant (research scientist/lecturer) at ETH Zurich before joining DTU Space in 2011. He has also spent periods as an invited researcher at institutes in the US (at IGPP, Scripps, UCSD) and in France (at IPG, Paris and at ISTerre, Grenoble).  In 2012 he was awared the SEDI Doornbos Memorial Prize for outstanding work on the Earth's deep interior by a young scientist.  He works extensively with magnetic observations from satellites and ground observatories, as well as with historical, archeomagnetic, and lake sediment magnetic records.  In 2010 he was lead author of the latest update of the International Geomagnetic Reference Field and is currently chair of IAGA Working Group V-MOD.  His recent theoretical work has encompassed quasi-geostrophic wave motions in the outer core and the development of geodynamo simulations designed to reproduce aspects of geomagnetic secular variation.  More broadly he has interests in planetary magnetic fields, the deep Earth, regional and crustal geomagnetic field modelling, inverse problems and geophysical fluid dynamics.
