Dr Freya Garry
Postdoctoral Research Associate


Freya Garry is a physical oceanographer and climate scientist. Freya studied oceanography at the University of Southampton and National Oceanography Centre Southampton for over 7 years, before commencing a postdoctoral position at the University of Exeter in January 2017. She joins a growing research group which studies the role of the oceans within climate change, focusing on biogeochemical cycling, variability and predictability.

Freya’s past research includes studying the predictability of change to the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation from densities in the Labrador Sea and performing idealised model experiments to test the influence of various factors on the climate of Europe. Her doctoral thesis evaluates uncertainties in the current system of ocean temperature measurement below 2000 m, and provides a model based assessment of ocean heat content variability which can help guide future deep ocean temperature observational system design.

Freya is now working on a NERC funded project, Climate of the Last Millennium (CLAM), which is an integrated data-model approach to reconstruct and interpret annual variability in North Atlantic Circulation. Freya provides modelling and data analysis expertise to interpret a novel palaeo-record and obtain a better understanding of the mechanisms behind ocean variability in the North Atlantic.

Broad research specialisms:

Ocean heat content and its role in climate variability on multi-annual timescales. Physical oceanography in the North Atlantic Ocean.
