Romi Burks

FCIA & Southwestern University
Professor of Biology
Georgetown, TX
Dr. Romi Burks started using chocolate to teach about the connections between disciplines around 15 years ago. As a Biology Professor at a small liberal arts college (Southwestern University), Burks teaches a multi-disciplinary First Year Seminar examining the subtleties of the "dark side" of chocolate and a deeper dive into the Science of Chocolate. She frequently judges in chocolate competitions, gives public lectures and encourages people to think more about what chocolate means. Her latest adventure includes steering the advancement of the Fine Chocolate Glossary in an effort to increase communication across the fine chocolate industry by understanding the nuances behind what certain terms mean.  More about Dr. Burks can be found on her website: www.profromi.com.
