He obtained a Ph.D. degree in Environmental Science from the University of Texas at Dallas in 1984. From 1980 until 1985 he was a Life Scientist with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. He was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences at the University of Colorado. Since then he has had positions as a NATO Senior Research Fellow in Portugal and Visiting Senior Scientist in Italy and New Zealand. Dr. Burton’s research during the past 20 years has focused on developing effective methods for identifying significant effects and stressors in aquatic systems where sediment and stormwater contamination is a concern. His ecosystem risk assessments have evaluated multiple levels of biological organization, ranging from microbial to amphibian effects. He has been active in the development and standardization of toxicity methods for the U.S. EPA, American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), Environment Canada, and the Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). Dr. Burton has served on numerous national and international scientific committees and review panels, has had approx. $5.6 million in grants and contracts, and over 150 publications dealing with aquatic system responses to stressors.
