Carey Friedman is an Associate Professor of Marine Science in the Corning School of Ocean Studies. She was appointed to Maine Maritime Academy's faculty in 2015.

Carey's research interests focus on the transport and fate of toxic chemicals in the environment. She has worked on projects ranging from determining how dredging contaminated sediments affects the exposure of marine biota to contaminants, to developing a global chemical transport model to assess the long-range transport of toxic contaminants in the atmosphere. She is particularly interested in how harmful chemicals travel to, accumulate in, and impact the Arctic and its inhabitants.
