Welcome to the College of Natural Sciences at Colorado State University, where graduate students and faculty work together to create new insights in the sciences and to make an impact on the world. Discovery begins here.
CSU biologist Kristen Ruegg is working with UCLA researchers to study which bird species are most impacted by the solar industry.
A CSU team is leading an effort to make cadmium-telluride solar cells even more efficient by focusing on a classic engineering bottleneck in their design.
Ruegg received the NSF Career Award Grant of 1.18 M dollars to continue her research into migratory birds. Her team will study the migration of 11 species, the first empirical test of the theory that the individuals from the same breeding site migrating to the same wintering site promotes local adaptation in wintering areas.
They offer a cost-effective synthetic pathway for conventional and new PHAs with enhanced properties.
