Our cohesive and inclusive team strives to conduct cutting-edge research in a wide-range of topics ranging from land-ocean interaction using radioisotope tracers , to phytoplankton physiology and productivity using ship-board and remote-sensing measurements of light, to community carbon production using gas measurements.  We also couple this science to fun and engaging outreach with various groups and communities.

The ‘Burt’ lab is dedicated to promoting and practicing good ‘J.E.D.I’ in all facets of our work. Not the yoda-kind, J.E.D.I meaning Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion. We are happy to discuss these practices, and more importantly, are always looking to improve.

We are always looking to expand our group, so if you are a highly-motivated undergraduate, graduate student, technician, or researcher, please don’t hesitate to reach out for more information about how to get involved!
