Biography

Dr. Pomraning came to PNNL in 2013 as a William Wiley Post-doctoral Fellow and joined the Chemical and Biological Process Development Group in 2016. He has over 10 years of experience working with fungi and expertise in systems biology, genomics, metabolic engineering, and fungal biology.

His current research activities include biological conversion of renewable feedstocks to biofuels and bioproducts. He has worked extensively on multi-omic analyses of biological processes and has experience in metabolic modeling and bioengineering as well as process scale-up to bioreactors.
