Welcome to the Burd Lab in the Department of Marine Sciences at the University of Georgia. We develop and use mathematical and computer models to help us understand the complex interplay between biological, chemical, and physical process in the oceans. When combined with experimental and observational data, these models provide tools for understanding observations, developing hypotheses, and making quantitative, testable predictions. We work on processes covering a range of scales from the microscopic to the global ocean.
Dr. Burd has been inducted into the University of Georgia Teaching Academy. Members of the Academy are chosen for their commitment to excellence in teaching and learning. The Academy provides a vehicle for faculty leadership in the teaching goals of the university, and provides a forum for members to further improve their teaching practices.
