Research Statement

Dr. Burian’s research helps to provide clean water, reduce risk from water-related hazards, and improve performance of water systems from site to global scales. His research group contributes to the engineering of sustainable and resilient urban water infrastructure systems, including stormwater, wastewater, and water supply. Focus areas include decentralization strategies and rainwater harvesting, green infrastructure, climate and flood impacts analysis, vulnerability assessment and adaptation, modeling and informatics, and water system interconnections to energy, climate, food security, and ecosystem services.
