FOUNDER & CHIEF SCIENCE OFFICER
Morgan is an ecologist and an environmental scientist. Her research is focused on understanding and applying ecological theories and principles to develop and manage quasi-closed, agro-ecological systems for use in extreme and changing Earth and space environments. Morgan and the DSE science team seek to understand how biogeochemical cycles and feedbacks may be developed in sterilized, degraded soil or regolith conditions through conducting fundamental research and field applications. Morgan Irons is a PhD candidate in the Field of Soil and Crop Sciences at Cornell University.
Dr. Irons has also been honored and awarded with the American Society for Gravitational and Space Research’s Ken Souza Memorial Spaceflight Award.
