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

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 the 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, carbon sequestration, water use, plant growth, and many 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 natural ecosystems, to purely industrial applications, such as methane leak detection from distribution networks, irrigation optimization, or geological and agricultural carbon sequestration.

My personal research interest is a broad scope of bio-atmospheric interactions, with over 30 years of experience in experimental science, 30+ field campaigns, over 200 institutional collaborations, and over 400 publications, including the first authorship of 7 books requested by 150,000+ 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, and a Master's degree in Micrometeorology at the University of Nebraska. I have a Ph.D. in Bio-Atmospheric Sciences from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
