Barry was awarded his BA from Geography/Earth Sciences at Trinity College Dublin (TCD) in 2003. After spending a year as a graduate research assistant in TCD, Barry was awarded an EPA-funded PhD scholarship in 2004. He was awarded his PhD in 2009. Since attaining his PhD, Barry has worked on a number of EPA- and Teagasc-funded projects. Barry's research employed lake sediment-based archives to reconstruct long-term temporal and spatial variations in freshwater ecosystem pressures (e.g. acidification, eutrophication and climate change) and responses. Moreover, this research has been employed to inform the development of predictive models which have been used to assess the effects of future and predicted climatic changes on freshwater ecosystems in Ireland.
Barry joined the CMRC in 2011, as a postdoctoral researcher, working on an EPA-funded project which aims to develop a Climate Information Platform (CIP) for Ireland. The CIP will provide a one stop shop for climate information in Ireland and will allow for access to geospatial information and knowledge, from multiple sources, for the development of adaptation policies and plans.
