Drew Bush is in the second year of a Ph.D. in McGill University’s Department of Geography and School of Environment. His research focuses on identifying new paradigms for teaching anthropogenic climate change that give students hands-on experience and brings learning outside classroom walls. He has also completed research examining human-environment relationships in relation to renewable energy development and community relationships to the ocean.
Drew has experience teaching and mentoring students in both educational and professional settings. At McGill, he has taught and assisted in courses in the Department of Geography and the School of Environment, served as graduate editor/advisor for the undergraduate journal Field Notes, and helped advise undergraduate research projects. In the summer months, he teaches children and adults who visit the Rutledge Marine Laboratory on Star Island, NH about island and ocean ecology. Prior to his academic career, Drew mentored high school and undergraduate students on writing and communications work as a professional in Washington, DC.
