Climate Research Assistant

Kushank is passionate about the bidirectional relationship between food systems and climate change: how food systems might be adapted to curb climate change, and the complex challenge posed by climate change to global and regional food systems. Trained as a disciplinary geoscientist, he pivoted from utilizing his skills in resource extraction towards the interdisciplinarity required to work on problems at the intersection of food-water-climate. Currently pursuing his PhD at the Institute for Resource, Environment and Sustainability, University of British Columbia, Kushank studies food and land-use systems, focusing on sustainable and resilient transformations. He also practices data science and data visualization skills with a policy-relevant focus. Kushank’s career trajectory is well exemplified by the common phrase “a jack of all trades is a master of none, but oftentimes better than a master of one.” Passionate about working with and for the community, he thrives when working on research projects across a range of disciplines and in an interactive and collaborative environment.”
