Professor of Geological Sciences, Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsTheoretical geochemistry of reactions among aqueous solutions and minerals in magma-hydrothermal systems; environmental geochemistry of toxic metals in the Mother Lode Gold region, CA, and the emergence of life in the aftermath of the Moon-forming impact, ca. 4.4Ga.
Research and Development Scientist and Engineer, Earth & Planetary Sciences
Current Role at StanfordI manage the Stable Isotope Biogeochemistry Laboratory in the Mitchell Building, part of the Environmental Measurements Facility 2 (EMF2) at Stanford's School of Earth Sciences. The lab houses 8 analyzer systems interfaced with 5 mass spectrometers which are used for high-precision stable isotope measurements of a wide variety of materials from terrestrial as well as marine environments. My role there is to ensure smooth operation of the instrumentation, to closely monitor the quality of the generated data, and to work with students and researchers to optimize existing or develop new methods for both sample preparation and analysis.

Affiliate, Basin & Petroleum System Modeling Group
BioAlan Burnham has a BS from Iowa State University Chemistry and PhD from the University of Illinois in Physical Chemistry. He worked at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory for 31 years on oil shale retorting, petroleum geochemistry, laser fusion material science, and energetic materials. He was CTO for American Shale Oil for 7 years prior to becoming an Consulting/Adjunct Professor at Stanford. During this time he was also an independent consultant on various energy projects. He is currently an affiliate in the Basin and Petroleum Systems Modeling (BPSM) Group and a consultant for Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.

Phys Sci Res Assoc, Earth & Planetary Sciences
BioI manage the Stanford Mineral and Microchemical Analysis Facility. My primary responsibilities include developing and testing procedures for measuring major and trace element concentrations in a variety of solid materials, working with Stanford researchers (and external users) to design experiments and collect, interpret, and publish data, and overseeing the long-term development and trajectory of the Mineral and Microchemical Analysis Facility both within the Stanford School of Earth, Energy, and Environmental Sciences and in the greater Stanford community.
