Anna Wright
Ph.D. Student
Environmental Studies


Anna is a PhD student with ENVS and INSTAAR. She is broadly interested in the intersection of hydrology and biogeochemistry, and the impacts of climate change in polar systems. She currently works with the McMurdo Dry Valleys Long-Term Ecological Research Program (LTER), and her research focuses on understanding carbon processes in Antarctic glacial melt streams and generating a carbon budget for these stream ecosystems. Before starting grad school at CU, Anna worked for the Niwot Ridge LTER and the Palmer LTER after earning her undergraduate degree in Environmental Studies and Environmental Chemistry from the University of Southern California.
