Hi, I'm George Burba, a Science & Strategy Fellow at LI-COR Biosciences, Global Fellow at R.B. Daugherty Water for Food Global Institute, and a Graduate Adjunct Professor in the School of Natural Resources at the University of Nebraska.

Our large interdisciplinary team of Ph.D. and M.S. level scientists and engineers, spread across several departments and groups, works on a multitude of research projects and activities related to development of new technologies, software and methods for state-of-the-art measurements and advanced scientific analysis of atmosphere-biosphere interactions, trace gas and energy exchange, and other environmental processes and parameters.

Every year we collaborate technically and scientifically with dozens of universities, institutions, monitoring and regulatory agencies, and private companies around the globe, conducting common research projects, testing new measurement systems, processing and analytical software, and developing new and improved measurement methods. These efforts span a wide range of applications, from purely ecological research, such as greenhouse gas exchange in permafrost areas, to purely industrial applications, such as methane leak detection from oil and gas distribution networks.

My personal research interest is a broad scope of bio-atmospheric interactions, with over 25 years of experience in experimental science, 30+ field campaigns, over 150 institutional collaborations, and over 360 publications, including first authorship of 6 books requested by 130,000+ individual researchers in 150+ countries, available in 40 research libraries, and placed on the curricula in over 50 universities and institutions.

I received my first graduate degree in Ecosystem Science and Geoecology at the Lomonosov Moscow State University, Russia, and a Master’s degree in Micrometeorology at University of Nebraska. I have a Ph.D. in Bio-Atmospheric Sciences from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
