Travis Burgers enjoys a well-designed experiment, digging through data and good scientific communication. His passion for experimentation and data blossomed during his PhD research with medical devices and bones at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Travis worked in medical research and medical devices for over a decade and among his accomplishments are two Philips Healthcare North America awards: for Innovation and for Excellence.

Travis is currently applying his interest in research to precision agriculture as a scientist/engineer in the Data Analytics team at Raven Industries, where he uses data in product development and system analysis to solve great challenges. There he has several patents and wrote a paper which demonstrated Raven’s automatic boom leveling system outperforms the competition. Travis also mentors graduate students to design experiments and dig through data in mechanical and biomedical engineering at South Dakota State University and the University of South Dakota.
