Profile

Biography

Dr Eleanor Frajka-Williams is a Principal Research Scientist in the Marine Physics and Ocean Climate group.

She is currently a research scientist on the RAPID team (http://rapid.ac.uk), and principal investigator on the NERC-funded project MerMEED (Mechanisms Responsible for Mesoscale Eddy Energy Dissipation, https://projects.noc.ac.uk/mermeed/) and the EU-funded project TERIFIC (Targeted Experiment to Reconcile Increased Freshwater with Increased Convection, http://terific.org).  

Biography:
I am a physical oceanographer who uses ocean observations to investigate ocean dynamics and circulation in a changing climate.  I have a particular interest in problems spanning scales (from micro- to large-scale) or spheres (biogeosphere, cryosphere, atmosphere), and in methods that leverage traditional observations with new platforms and satellite data.
