Scholarly work[edit]

Bury has been tracing the interaction between mining projects, rural livelihood systems, and environmental change in the Peruvian Andes since the late 1990s. Over this time, the pace of mining has increased, as has local resistance to it.

He is also part of a large NSF project, "Hydrologic Transformation and Human Resilience to Climate Change in the Peruvian Andes."
