Patrick Vogan, Ph.D.

One of the lucky few, I knew what I wanted to do when I was 15. Since I found out then that photosynthesis was the most interesting topic I would ever encounter, I have not swerved from the study of plant physiology. In 2015, I started with NewLeaf after living a vagabond academic lifestyle, transitioning from graduate school to 2 post-doctoral research fellowships and stints teaching high school Biology and community college horticulture night classes. In my spare time, I enjoy playing chess and fantasy sports, watching Big Brother, cycling, cooking, playing rock & roll guitar and reading tomes in history, urban planning and the anthropology of lost civilizations.
