PhD Candidate, Department of Bioagricultural Sciences and Pest Management, Colorado State University

Paul Tanger is a Postdoctoral Fellow at Colorado State University (CSU), working to improve plants for bioenergy use.  He recently completed his Ph.D. at CSU, where his research examined the diversity of bioenergy traits in rice, and sought to identify genes underlying these important traits.  The goal of this research was to improve rice as a food crop, as well as a source of economical bioenergy from leftover rice straw.  Paul is looking forward to applying his skills and experience to link science and energy policy together to improve our lives and environment. In his free time, Paul likes to cook, travel, and moonlight as an amateur photographer and is most likely found enjoying outdoor activities including running, soccer, mountaineering, and backcountry skiing.
