Chris van Baak




Christiaan van Baak received his MSc in 2010 and his PhD in 2015 from Utrecht University in The Netherlands. His PhD focused on creating an absolute age framework for the Late Miocene to Recent of the Black Sea and Caspian Sea (the Paratethys) region using magnetostratigraphy, 40Ar/39Ar geochronology and cyclostratigraphy to identify periods of connection between the Paratethys Sea and the Mediterranean Sea. This was followed by a 2.5 year postdoc at Utrecht University continuing this research.

Chris joined CASP in October 2017 on a 3 year post-doc to research issues related to Paratethyan stratigraphy.
