Meet the Interns - Adam Burns


I’m currently finishing up my last semester of graduate school in Civil and Environmental Engineering

What are you working on at Agrible?

I am working with both the science and infrastructure teams. Recently, I’ve been working on Agrible’s weather and atmospheric science data infrastructure.

What got you interested in interning with Agrible?

Since my background is in both Atmospheric Sciences as well as Civil and Environmental Engineering, I wanted to find a place where I could best put my knowledge to use. I think that there exist a number of interactions between agriculture, atmospheric sciences, and engineering that could uncover new and exciting possibilities in the future. One of the most exciting aspects to Agrible is the wide range of experts that we have. I really enjoy working in an environment that not only has people who are extremely intelligent, but also bring a unique set of skills to the team. 

What do you hope to get our of your internship at Agrible?

During my internship at Agrible, I look forward to expanding my real-life experience in this industry and improving my programming abilities. I am also excited to learn more about agriculture and the interactions between crops and weather. Lastly, the opportunity for personal and professional development is one of the things that I look forward to the most during my internship. 

If you could have lunch with one person, living or dead, who would it be?

Without a doubt, I would have lunch with theoretical physicist, Richard Feynman. I think that Dr. Feynman has a fascinating way of thinking about complex concepts. Furthermore, the way that he describes the most mundane things is extremely interesting and engaging. I would love to have the chance to pick his brain and learn more about how his mind works.
