Biography

Prof Burke is Professor of Crop Science and holder of the Agrii Chair of Crop Science at University College Dublin  Prior to joining UCD he was Head of the Teagasc, National Crops Research Centre, at Oak Park, Carlow. During his time in Teagasc he also held various other positions such as Chief Crops Scientist, Head of the Crop Science Department, Co-ordinator of sugar beet research, and programme leader for crops, horticulture and forestry. He was also an adjunct Professor at NUI Maynooth, Co Kildare, Ireland, and a research fellow in the School of Botany at Trinity College Dublin.

Prof Burke studied at University College Galway and at University College Dublin where he was awarded B.Agr.Sc, M.Agr.Sc and PhD Degrees. He later worked for a number of years at the University of California at Davis, USA, and returned  to Ireland to take up a post as a plant physiologist /agronomist with the Agricultural Institute. His major interests include: the agronomy and physiology of arable crops and the development of physiological growth models for the simulation of plant growth and development, plant response to environmental stress and climate change as well as development of new biotechnological approaches for plant improvement and bioenergy.

He has published in various scientific journals, written book chapters, and co-authored a  textbook on Biotechnology and has written  many national reports pertaining to agriculture. He is currently a member of Governing Body of the Carlow Institute of Technology and a member of the Irish Bioindustry Association and the Cereals Association of Ireland.  Previously he was the Irish representative on various EU research committees and has also served on many boards and advisory committees relating to agriculture, biotechnology and bioenergy. He has a close working relationship with many national and international research centres and has participated in several collaborative research projects. He has been a member of many international peer review assessment panels and a member of visiting expert groups focusing on research strategy and research prioritisation.
