“Microbiome scientist Kelly Wrighton, an assistant professor in the Department of Soil and Crop Sciences, is a recipient of the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE).  Wrighton joined Colorado State University’s faculty in 2018 from Ohio State University. She leads a research group studying how microorganisms contribute to ecosystem processes, exploring microbial communities in a range of environments. These include river systems, soils, the human gut, and hydraulically fractured shales. Her research has implications for soil health; improved predictions of greenhouse gases; optimized energy recovery from hydrocarbon systems; and stabilized human gastrointestinal function. Her lab uses genomics-enabled technologies to inventory microbial gene content and expression.”
