Carrie A Eckert

Carrie A. Eckert, PhD., is a Senior Research Scientist with a joint appointment at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and the University of Colorado, Boulder, Renewable and Sustainable Energy Institute (RASEI), University of Colorado, Boulder, CO. Eckert received a B.S. in Biology from the University of South Dakota (1999) and a Ph.D. in Molecular Biology at the University of Colorado, Anschutz Campus under the supervision of Dr. Paul Megee where she studied chromosome segregation in Saccharomyces cerevisiae (2006). After a short Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) postdoctoral fellowship with Dr. James Maller studying cell cycle regulation in Xenopus laevis egg extracts (Pharmacology, University of Colorado, Anschutz campus), she began postdoctoral studies at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory in 2008 and became a staff scientist in 2011. Her work at NREL has involved the study of hydrogenases and metabolic engineering in diverse microbes including Synechocystis sp. PCC6803, Ralstonia eutropha H16, and Rubrivivax gelatinosus CBS. More recent work includes the metabolic engineering of bioethylene production in E. coli as a part of a collaborative project with the Gill lab, as well as a collaborative project with Kiverdi working on metabolic engineering of microbes for terpenoid production using Syngas as a feedstock.
