Beau Burns

Research Analyst

Beau Burns is a Research Analyst in WestWater’s Phoenix office who is responsible for tracking Texas water market activity. He tracks water market transactions throughout the state to provide financial and economic advisory services.

Beau received his Bachelor of Science in Mathematical Economics from Colorado College. His area of study focuses on environmental economics, including the economics of energy production and the economics of water management. He has completed independent research on resource economics in Colorado that focused on valuing in-channel diversions for recreational uses. Beau also wrote a series of papers on the history of the Fountain Valley Creek watershed in Colorado Springs, which focused on the effects of trans-boundary diversions on watersheds in Colorado. His senior thesis was on quantifying the impacts of the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act in California.  His thesis used a spreadsheet model in Excel to look at the income effect on the agriculture of groundwater management. The model was developed while speaking and working with farmers directly.
