His research career began with the quantification of the behavior of wall jets, which are used to enhance ventilation in animal housing like dairy barns, and the forecasting of airflow patterns in buildings. For the health and well-being of cattle, proper ventilation is essential since it lowers the risk of sickness and overheating.

The work for which Albright is arguably best known included studying and enhancing environmental management in greenhouses. Albright had an interest in learning how the Northeast might increase its production of vegetables during the 1970s energy crisis in order to reduce its reliance on imported food.

Albright built research greenhouses in Ithaca in partnership with the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority and used them to create and test methods and strategies for growing organic vegetables like lettuce, kale, and spinach in a quick, efficient, and environmentally friendly manner.

Since then, a variety of businesses, notably Challenge Industries, utilized the greenhouses to raise vegetables for commercial sale for many years. Growers all around the Northeast now use the techniques Albright created to enable them to grow veggies all year round in chilly locations.
