Andy Biggin is a Professor of Palaeomagnetism at the University of Liverpool’s Geomagnetism Lab where he arrived in 2009 after working at labs in Mexico, France, and the Netherlands. He is mainly involved in the field of fundamental palaeomagnetism: using the magnetism of rocks to study the behaviour and evolution of the Earth’s magnetic field over a wide range of timescales (decades to billions of years). Primary research interests focus on the use of palaeomagnetic records to provide insights into how processes occurring in the core, mantle, and crust of the planet interact with one another.
